Yosemite Falls is famous for being one of the tallest waterfalls in North America standing at 2,425 feet tall. This 7.3 mile hike has a total ascent of almost 4,000 feet with its elevation peaking at 6,710 feet high. The trail to Yosemite Falls comes with panoramic views of Yosemite Valley, Half Dome, and Upper Yosemite Falls.
The trail to Yosemite Falls starts at Camp #4 in the middle of Yosemite Valley. This makes it easily accessible but also attracts a crowd. It’s recommended to get an early start in order to snag one of the limited parking spots available only ten minutes from the trailhead. Otherwise, there are free green shuttles that will drop you off just outside the trail head.
