Yosemite Falls, Yosemite National Park

#2 of 41 in Parks in Yosemite National Park
Must see · Waterfall · Nature / Park
With three separate drops measuring 739 m (2,425 ft) in total, Yosemite Falls is the tallest waterfall in North America and ranks among the top ten in the world. It can be seen from many places throughout the Yosemite Valley, but you can also hike to the base and the top of the waterfall. An easy hike to the base is wheelchair accessible and rewards you with a stunning view of the upper drop. Just be careful of the slippery ground and don’t be surprised if you get sprayed by the water. The trail to the top offers breathtaking views of the valley, but you should consider it only if you’re a serious hiker. Make Yosemite Falls a centerpiece of your Yosemite National Park vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Yosemite National Park trip planner.

  • The overlook onto Yosemite Falls is one of the most incredible experiences I have ever had. It's so calm and serene above the falls until you realize the fact that it plunges 2000 feet.
  • this park is one of the largest and most beautiful parks in the world. create a space for just one day to visit and discover the beauty of this place, among pristine forests, mountains, rivers of water between boulders and wooden bridges. also try to climb high in the park, you will enjoy a spectacular view, and if you go at sunset, it becomes all magic. absolutely recommended, it is a place that remains in the heart.
