It's so pretty! It has a nice paved area for people to look at it and take pictures. There is a bridge that goes over the river.

We parked up a little way from Yosemite Village and walked to the falls. The trail is very easy and lovely and scenic, but on our visit, this was one of the busiest parts of the park. Keep your eyes peeled for animals – we...More
