Do not skip this! Amazing views of the valley - it does get steep but is worth the extra 1.5 miles.

Description

This is a great side trail off of the main trek definitely not to be missed! Drop your big pack at the base, but be sure to take water and a camera (unless you have a photographic memory). It does get a little steep but not hard.

Depending on how long you are going that day, you may get to the point where you aren't sure if you want to add the additional 1.5 miles. Without question, you do! This trail boasts some of the most amazing views of the valley that few ever see. You'll mostly wind around through the trees until you get to the viewpoint. The trail ends at a large rock, but it's an easy scramble to get to the beauty.

Try to hit it at sunset and you'll see the most amazing colors on half some. In general, the view is worth the extra trip from upper Yosemite falls.
