With ice forming and cracking some of the noises around this fall we’re incredible. In amongst the matter of a certain group of people from Asia dressed for a fashion show rather than hiking on ice. The walk up was not strenuous at all. Just...More

Great trails and wonderful vistas. Very easy hike to the lower falls, but very challenging and long uphill to upper falls.

Yosemite Fall's in the winter is a beautiful walk in the valley in the early morning it is mostly frozen but as the day progresses it thaws and flows stronger. Still a great stop on a walk or bike ride when possible.

The most beautiful park ever. You must see it. Beautiful nature, some animals like chipmunks. Many trails with difficult hardness.

We were told that the time to see them at their best is June, when the snow is melting, but unfortunately our visit was in October and they were dry. However, apart from that, it was a very scenic walk to the falls viewing point.

We were lucky as we could see the waterfall, it was not dried out. The whole area is worth a walk. The whole national park is just amazing.

Still a beautiful trail, but not a drop of water trickling in Lower Yosemite Falls. Amazing scenery, worth a walk anyway.

The lower falls is a short walk to the viewing area. He should have no problem with that. I think you have to hike to the top of the falls for the "upper," which would be too much. Park your car and take advantage of the... More
