Easy paved walk down to the top of Upper Yosemite Falls, you can watch the water shoot by and over. You get a better view looking up to the falls from downstream on some of the other trails, but the sheer water volume is impressive. Our visit was during chilly, overcast weather, but still enjoyed the roaring torrents. Worth a stop.

a paved walkway, but standing next to the falls shouldn't be missed

Again, surprised no one has reviewed or added photos here. This is an easy walk down to the brink of the upper falls. Not as high as the lower falls, but still impressive. And a much easier walk than the lower trail. Both of these trails are kind of a must do when in Yellowstone in my opinion. Not too many places where you can stand that close to the edge of a big waterfall.
