The lower fall trail is very easy and so it's a very popular trail. It's also not much of a distance to cover - at most 1 to 2 miles both ways. The falls itself is not spectacular but worth seeing

It's only a short, easy, flat walk to the lower falls and well worth it, even though the falls were hardly flowing when we visited. I'd say if you're into waterfalls, visit in spring - a guide told us that May is great in Yosemite...More

Water over falls was still flowing but not as powerful as in the spring time. Great walk with wide paved walkways and fairly flat.

Loved the waterfall and the hike is very easy but just so many people. If you are driving get there early because finding parking will probably take longer than the hike.

It's a strolling trail, very easy! Nice views from the bottom of the falls. Many people hang out in the river under the bridge.

It is a short and simple hike. During spring the view was amazing. Waterfall was at its peak. It is wheelchair accessible.

I love going to the falls first thing in the am, before the crowds. This year, the water was still roaring and impressive given it was August.

Very scenic and short hike. The hike is mainly on flat trail near Yosemite Valley. It is heavily trafficked because it is near the valley but there lots of room for everyone. The best part is climbing the rocks to get to the top of...More
