Hiking The Lower Yosemite Falls Trail
Yosemite Falls is one of the most popular attractions in Yosemite National Park. The waterfall cascades down three seperate tiers over 2,425 feet. In fact, if is so inclined, they can hike to the top of Yosemite Falls. This trail however, is not difficult and not nearly as long. The views are still quite a reward and definitely awe inspiring. The Lower Yosemite Falls Trail takes visitors right up to the base of the bottom portion of the falls which is 320 feet. The trail leading up to the base offers people an incredible view of both upper and lower Yosemite Falls along the way to the viewing footbridge.
