Great hike, have done it several times. Did it again yesterday (11/2/14) and was dismayed at how little water was in the falls (not surprising given the drought).

The trail and hike from the valley floor is best done early.....late spring or early summer. The run-off and the amount of water coming over the falls at this time can be amazing and such was the case on this day. Unbelievable really!!! This was a result of late winter storms, The snowfall in the Sierra's was epic. Kirkwood Ski Area had over 840 inches for the season! This well marked trail is less than 4 miles to the top....with the best view of all (3) sections of Yosemite Falls on the hike up. This is a fairly easy hit for a fit hiker, and like everywhere in Yosemite the views from the top are incomparable! This hike took my friend and I less than two hours to the top. Normally we would add North Dome, but on this day we were just out for an easy little walk.

Days gone by. The 70's. No need for a trail. We'll just go straight up. So we did. Every now and then we'd come to a piece of the trail and relish its ease but then it would be right back to the climb. Today, with the sheer numbers who travel this road in mind, it'd be a different story.

Hiked this trail twice. Once for fun, other time to fix the lines down into the notch with Lost Arrow Spire (was climbing LASD for a few days after). Made the tyrolean traverse a reality.

Serious thunderstorm made for a wet one although virtually no one on the trail. Poor visiblity at summit due to thick precipitation. Gorgeous valley views on the descent as rain cleared.
Yosemite love

Big snow year in winter 2010-11 led to wonderful falls in spring 2011. Thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful hike, despite lots of company. Considerable snow still on top.

nice trail. I did it once in winter and the falls formed a weird snow/ice pyramid at the bottom that you can get over to

Got a late start up the trail, made it to the top around 4pm in the middle of a huge thunder and lightning storm...next time will be smarter-up by noon, down by 2! Amazing views of the valley and half dome on the way up, the rocks can be very slippery on the way down.

The hike to the top of Yosemite Falls is my favorite in the park. I have done it many times in all seasons, camping out on several occasions at the top of the upper falls.

The falls were a shadow of their summer glory. Still, wonderfully graceful.

Thought I was in good shape and got educated in the truth. This was a beautiful hike but definitely start early and train for the continuous uphill walking. I will always remember the feeling of exhausted thighs when I reached the top. Well worth it.

Hiked a couple of summers ago. Start early to avoid the heat and take lots of water. The views are tremendous. Highly recommended for a day hike in the valley.

Lots of switchbacks up the trail, and it gets moderate crowds (like everything else in Yosemite) but worth it.
