"Mist Trail beyond Vernal Falls to Nevada Falls" Mist Trail Tip by Ischyros
Mist Trail, Yosemite National Park: 15 reviews and 31 photos
Beyond Vernal Falls the trail levels out and offers great shots of Emerald Pool and Silver Apron. DO NOT SWIM IN THE RIVER!! Many people are swept over the falls every year. The trail crosses the river and soon starts another steep climb up several rocky switchbacks. Watch your step here as loose gravel can make footing tricky. At the top of the switchbacks, the trail splits. Head left for a set of restrooms and also to hike to Little Yosemite Valley or to the top of Half Dome or Clouds Rest. Go right to reach the brink of the Nevada Falls. Return the way you came but be very careful! An easier way down is by way of the John Muir trail. You won't get wet this way either.
