  • The best waterfall hike in the USA. The falls are pretty shocking, and the trip up is ultra-challenging. But the trail is PERFECT. It’s either paved or stepped the whole way up. The views are stunning...  more »

  • Though the hike was difficult it was amazing and worth the effort. The falls us beautiful and the rainbow that shines across it is spectacular. (5 STARS!!!!)
  • Take the Mist Trail only when you're prepared to Mist from the fall and many big steps to reach the top of Vernal Falls. Alternatively is there an other route to reach the top. But this isn't so spectacular like the Mist Trail.
  • If you go to Yosemite you must visit this place. Also Nevada falls its even better but you have to make the extra 2 miles.
  • Park employees said Google maps got this wrong.
  • Amazing view. Toilets isn't clean.
