Such an easy hike in and such a beautiful waterfall. We did this at the end of the day and just laid back on a rock and watched variations in fall patterns with the wind changes...like it was dancing!

A short hike to see this amazing falls. The wind was really blowing and the falls continued to change shape and flow. Such a beautiful site.

It may not be Iguazu or even Victoria Falls but it is most impressive and clearly one of the highpoints of a visit to Yosemite. Well worth the 5-7 minute walk from the parking area (assuming you can find a parking place!). After walking up...More

Not the best waterfall in the park but interesting none the less. The wind was blowing the falls nicely when we visited but it was all a bit underwhelming.

This waterfall you can see from one of the main roads in Yosemite. It is most spectacular in the spring but always a beautiful sight to see.

We went to the falls around 6:00 pm one afternoon. Much of the crowd had departed so we were easily able to find a close in parking spot. The hike to the falls was pretty easy and relatively level. Standing at the viewing site, you...More

Got too closed to the waterfalls. We stayed for an hour and enjoyed the view and the sound of water falling. It was rocky and those big rocks were slippery but it's all worth it.

Yosemite falls is a good walk, you can park in the little village and it's about a 30 minute walk each way. it's not too hilly and is pleasant!

Hi Please ask on the TripAdvisor travel forum for Yosemite. Bridalveil Fall is a very short walk from the parking area. Peak flow is usually late May or early June. I don't know what "trek" means to you. When you... More
