Hiking

Overrun with young people partying with zero masks. We did upper and middle falls on a Saturday morning. It's very pretty! lots of green. You can access falls on all 3 trails--Upper is a super short, very steep scramble, Middle/Lower are easy water access. There were some families with young children, many teens and young adults partying which is honestly fine with us, but we saw about 8 masks out of 100 people we saw. Easy walk, not even a hike doing all 3

Busy place but a great starting point for Yosemite, your able to see most everything and give you a feel for the layout of the park.

Wow! My favorite hike so far. The views and scenery the entire way are absolutely breathtaking. Great feeling starting at the valley floor looking up to see where you are headed, then looking down at the top it’s unbelievable you climbed that high. The trail is in great condition. My 12 year old daughter and I did it together. We stopped at the top of vernal and enjoyed the Emerald Pools. Then again at the top of Nevada at the sandy beach. We were also able to fill our waters at the creek. We had 3L packs, it was a hot day but we both had plenty of water. It’s a bit steep and hard on the knees on the way down. The rewards along the way make It totally worth it.

Got there around 3:30pm. It wasn't too hot. nice breeze. Funny part is that when the trail end with the signs you will have to walk up to get the the trail that goes up to the peak. alot of loose gravels and rocks and really windy on top. Almost blown away!

This trial is absolutely beautiful from the minute you start! You truly get some remarkable views, moss on trees, granite rock formations, crystal clear water, wildflower! All that for very little work! Easy amazing hike! We added another mile in and saw Lake Angelina as well! Must do!

We started clockwise on this trail which starts at the bridge past the campground sites host to left of the trail based on other reviews. Which with an 8 year old I am so glad we did. It was fairly mild to Winemucca with lovely views and wild flowers at this time of year (July) the hike to round top (site 3 is the best by far) was difficult when you’re carrying 50lbs but totally ok with the younger ones. We all had an amazing time and took the shorter route down to woods lake on the way back which made us thank the people who suggested doing it this way. It was like foot steps all the way down! It took us an hour and a half from the top to the lot which wasn’t bad. We’ll be back! Oh BTW we were stopped twice by the ranger and several Unpermitted overnighters were kicked out because they didn’t have the correct permits… Check out the website to get your correct permit for the correct site to avoid that. Can’t imagine hiking all that way to have to leave. Would be such a bummer.

Great stroll with the family. One of the best NP ever.

Iconic, majestic, & worth the hype. Beyond the cables at the end of the hike, working through different eco-systems on the high-Sierra offered stunning views, beautiful waterfalls, and awesome physical challenges. We loved the anticipation of getting to the end and the anxiety of climbing up the cables. We were on top of the world looking down on Yosemite Valley. Recommendations: we used a harness, webbing, carabiners, and gloves on the cables. I loved the added security. I definitely recommend good hiking boots, at least 3L of water per person, & electrolyte supplements if you’re hiking in the summer. I wish I used hiking poles for the way down as my calves are in a lot of pain today. Be in good-great physical condition as this is a full day and difficult hike.

Parking was a struggle. Got there about 8:00. Only hiked 4 miles because I was only able to find a parking spot for 2.5 hours. Made it to lower echo lake a back. Heavily tracked. Beautiful views. Well kept and clean. Everyone was nice and polite. Lots of dogs.

This is a short trail with minimal climbing and a huge payoff. These are actual craters, filled with water, in an impressive landscape. The geology is amazing and easy to appreciate if you love the varied natural offerings of our amazing planet. It is not a “hike” as much as it is a destination walk.

After the first major descent, the trail narrows and the amount of hikers is significantly reduced.

Very busy and heavily trafficked. Eagle lake is quite beautiful and refreshing. Great places to take a dip. Would be a great morning trail run if you are into that kind of thing.

Fun little jaunt. May be considered “easy” for adults in good shape. Moderate for kids but very doable. Took everyone’s advice and followed the trails that were more “rocky” and had no issues finding it. 4 stars because it was a tad bit busy but a gorgeous trip.

GORGEOUS trail! I would definitely pack some snacks, enough water, and bug spray! Of course the sunscreen! Plenty of shade throughout trail, we stopped at heather lakes and enjoyed the water! Definitely wear some good shoes because some parts of the trailhead can have a quite a bit of gravel! Other than that, beautiful hike! Looking forward to seeing the other two lakes along that trail!

Decent trail for a quick hike, but SO MUCH garbage. This trail is heavily traveled, and pretty busy, so if you're looking to get away (from people) it's not a great spot. We stayed on the south side and there were fewer people (the campgrounds and picnic areas are on the north side), and the views were okay, but lots of garbage all over. The "waterfall" is not much to look at, a especially if there are other people there blocking what little view there is. There was heavy machinery on the hillside clearing trees and brush, so lots of dust as well. Probably would not return.

Most amazing hike I’ve done so far! I’m just I’m OK shape and I was at the peak in 4 hours and down in 2.5 with several stops for lakes/viewpoints. Beautiful 360 views at the top and great sights all along. Gorgeous wildflowers!! When the trail splits around 3 miles in, I recommend going to the right on the switchbacks, as the trail going left looked very steep. There are MANY places where you are walking on loose rock, and the last 0.5 miles up involves scrambling. The path isn’t super clear here, especially coming back down. Would recommend following the trail map with GPS at this point - service is good almost the entire hike. I started at 1:30 pm but it was cloudy so the sun wasn’t bad. I’d recommend starting early on a sunny day. The start of the hike is surprisingly well shaded, but you’re exposed for the last couple miles. Bring sunscreen, bug spray if you plan to start past noon, and tons of water- I brought 80 ounces and drank it all. If you want to do only part of the hike, from 1-1.5 miles in you have a great overhead view of fallen leaf lake, at 2 miles you reach floating island lake, and at 2.5 you are at cathedral lake.

Absolutely breathtaking views of a pristine lake in the mountains. Trail was a bit of a challenge at some points — especially on the way back down. Trail ends at a small dock on a picturesque lake. Cannot overstate how incredible it is to be able to swim in a fresh lake after hiking for miles.
