"Mist Trail - Vernal and Nevada Falls" Mist Trail Tip by thebeatsurrender

Mist Trail, Yosemite National Park: 15 reviews and 31 photos


The Mist Trail starts at the Happy Isles Trailhead. We parked at Curry Villiage and walked 10 minutes up to the trailhead. The crowded trail rises above the river until the bridge below Vernal Falls. The trail then splits into the Mist trail running along the river to the top of Vernal Falls, and the John Muir trail which goes up the hill straight to Nevada Falls (and by straight I mean via a bunch of switchbacks). The split is not marked well and its easy to take the wrong path. They both get you to Nevada Falls, though.
