If you’re looking for more challenge than the short hike to catch the famous views of lower Yosemite Falls, hike to Upper Yosemite Falls on this guided day hike! It is a long, steep climb from the valley floor to the top of Yosemite Falls, North America’s tallest waterfall. Our hike, on one of the oldest historic trails in the park, begins near Camp 4, notable as the hangout for rock climbers, and climbs switchback after switchback offering great views of Yosemite Valley, as well as lower and mid Yosemite Falls and Half Dome. Continuing on from Columbia Rock, we may experience a welcomed mist from the waterfall as we continue our climb. Our efforts will be rewarded with spectacular views from an overlook, at the top of Yosemite, as we watch Yosemite creek cascade over the edge. After enjoying the view we turn around and hike back down to the wooded valley floor. Check out our blog on 5 Waterfall Hikes in Yosemite.
