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.
make sure n find out how to get to the trailhead, go to camp 4 and head north ... you'll see it or ask someone, easy trail to follow from there
An enjoyable day in the Sierra's, went on up to Yosemite Point- great views of the valley! Falls were tremendous this year!
A group of 7 from our camp made this charge up Yosemite Falls in 3 hours. We temporarily missed the correct trail at the TH, but it turned out well because we spotted a bear in the process. Once we hit the trail we made good progress to the top. We were paced by my 7-year-old son. Of course, unlike the rest of us, he only had to haul his 45-pound carcass to the top! I was so proud of him for hiking strong to the top. We took plenty of pictures and swam in the creek above the bridge (where it wasn't dangerous). Great day. Great hike.
