“Revel in stunning views of Yosemite Falls in its entirety and walk to the base of the Lower Fall.”— Brian Smith
Family Friendly This is a wide, flat and smooth trail with some of the most stunning waterfall views in the park. The whole family will surely be captivated on this trail.
If walking from the Valley Visitor center, follow the bicycle path to shuttle stop #6 and begin the trail. Consider walking the loop in a clockwise direction for best views of Yosemite Falls. This eastern portion of this loop trail is wheelchair accessible (when not covered in ice or snow).
