We went in September but the fall was still kind of strong. Easy hike to the bridge and we also had the opportunity to climb the rocks to the base of the fall. Beautiful experience.

Beautiful trail that leads to Lower Yosemite Fall. Takes about 20-25 minutes from the parking all the way to the Falls. Loved it

Amazing Waterfalls are just the beginning of a nice journey through the Lower falls of Yosemite. The roaring sounds and thrust of the Lower Falls will just overwhelm you. The trail takes you through the park and then some.

Our family hiked the Lower Yosemite Fall Trail on our visit to Yosemite. The trail is not difficult nor very long. It leads to the base of Lower Yosemite Fall. Also Upper Yosemite Fall is visible nearby. When we were there the water was rushing from all of the snow melt from a very snowy winter. It was an amazing sight. If you stayed at the bottom of the fall very long you would get quite wet. I highly recommend hiking to Lower Yosemite Fall.

Easy hike along a flat path. This area gets very busy as it’s a very short hike to the base of the falls.

This is a short walk to view the Lower Yosemite Falls. It’s a good choice for a swift stroll from the village. We saw wildlife en route as well. It is very popular

Would love to see the falls when they are flowing. Trail is ok, but busy since its fairly flat with pavement.

The falls are well worth the drive into Yosemite. We were worried there would only be a trickle of water in the September. We were not disappointed at all. The path is easy to fallow and walk. It was a perfect, sunny day.

If you're not the most athletic or fit or if you have kids but still want to get steps in or you just want a short trail to see something beautiful, the Lower Falls trailhead is a great option. It's only a short walk from the car park and has great views of the falls. Take care near the waterfall as there is a rocky path.
