If you're coming just to see this waterfall May is the perfect time, it's flowing as best as it ever gets. If you don't mind crowds go on the short walk to the lower part of the falls listen to the sounds and smell the...More

Even in the height of summer when it's busy the falls are a great location to visit in the park. It's a relatively short walk from Yosemite Village to get to them and the scenery is breathtaking with the calm sounds of the waterfalls and...More

We didn't hike all the way up but took some pics on the ground with the beautiful waterfall. A great way to start your day :) Visited back in Summer 2005

Yosemite Falls is flowing in all it's glory now due to the snow melt. It is a blast to walk through the mist at the Lower Falls and look for rainbows. The water is flowing everywhere and the Dogwoods are amazing. The sooner you go,...More

The pictures say it all with the increased rainfall in California this year and the snow melt the Yosemite waterfalls are the most beautiful they have been in the Last 5 Years. There are waterfalls which don't usually exist.

A magnificent walk. We only walked about 1/2 way, to where the trail went close to the bottom of the upper falls. It is fairly strenuous, but well and truly worth the effort. See as much as you can and enjoy.

To start with, due to bad signage, these can be difficult to find. Even after finding them, they don't seem to be that great. However, I read that they are one of the top falls in the world in terms of the height - really...More

My dad and I are visiting Yosemite next May. He has a bad hip so he can't walk too much. Are you able to see the lower and upper Yosemite falls without doing the hike?

The lower falls is a short walk to the viewing area. He should have no problem with that. I think you have to hike to the top of the falls for the "upper," which would be too much. Park your car and take advantage of the... More
