Beautiful area to visit and walk on the river bed (in October) during March the river is full of water. Regardless of the time of the year, the view from the bridge is gorgeous.
This is a great beach to spend an afternoon in surrounded by the majestic Yosemite mountains. Some picnic tables, BBQ grills and bathrooms. Parking can be a headache but with a little patience we were able to nab a spot. The kids enjoyed "fishing" and searching for "gold" But the best thing about this spot is it's unparalleled beauty.
