Standing as one of the tallest waterfalls in North America, Yosemite Falls is a striking feature of Yosemite National Park. This waterfall drops a total of 2,425 feet in three tiers and is most powerful in late spring, when the winter snows are melting. The falls are accessible via a number of hiking trails, offering various views from both the base and the top. The Yosemite Falls Trail provides a challenging hike that is rewarded with up-close views of the upper fall.

Another gem within Yosemite, Bridalveil Fall is often the first waterfall seen by visitors entering the park. Plunging 617 feet, Bridalveil Fall is beautiful throughout the year but is particularly impressive during the spring runoff. The mist from the waterfall coats the surrounding rocks, creating slippery conditions but also a mystical atmosphere that gives the fall its name.

Here is a suggested hike.

 Yosemite Falls Trail, California

Leading you to the tallest waterfall in the country, not only is this is one of the best hikes in America, but this beautiful trail is the best way to see Yosemite Valley. This trail is strenuous, and a good level of physical fitness and endurance are needed. Something to note is that it isn’t necessary to hike the final ascent to the top of the Upper Falls as there is no view of the cascades, and you can see both falls along your route. Permits are not needed to hike this trail and the best time to visit is spring and summer. When you reach the falls, you will be in awe of its size and beauty. Its drop is a massive 2,425ft whereby contrast Niagara Falls only drops 156ft. Be sure to bring a rain jacket if you are visiting in spring as the falls will be roaring.
