  Lower Yosemite Falls
by Ischyros

This short 10-minute walk puts hikers at a bridge at the base of Lower Yosemite Falls. Falling a relatively short 300 feet, this is where Yosemite Creek makes it's final decent to the valley floor having fallen some 2,425 feet from the cliffs above. From the trailhead you can get an excellent view of the entire length of the Yosemite Falls.

Directions: Follow the signs from Yosemite Village toward Yosemite Lodge. The parking lot for the Lower Yosemite Falls trail is on the right side of the road.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
