Yosemite Falls
Timing is everything if you want to fully appreciate Yosemite Falls, one of the most popular attractions in the park. The falls are fed by melting snow in the high country, beginning around April, and by the end of summer the falls are but a trickle of its former self. The falls are actually three sections and together they make up one of the highest waterfalls in the world: The 320-foot Lower Fall is the most accessible (and popular); just follow the signs on footpath at the back of the Yosemite Valley Lodge. Almost all of the middle section is obscured as it drops through a narrow gorge, except for a few viewing spots on the steep Yosemite Falls trail. The 1430-foot upper falls is the show-stopper as it plunges 1,430 feet from a granite saddle at the mouth of a meadow; trails from the valley floor and from above afford spectacular views, but you can also find great views in the valley from the Swinging Bridge and the field on the south side of the Majestic Yosemite Hotel.
