This is always crowded as it's a main attraction from the Valley Floor. When there is water ( no drought) these Falls are amazing. We don't get intimidated by the crowds as the view and splendid nature of the falls outweighs all the rest.

The visit to these falls was our favourite. We kept going back. When we visited there had been a lot of rain and the falls were amazing with lots of spray and noise. The power of the falls was amazing.

Beautiful falls, really cool even in the heat of the day, so not a bad picnic spot- but anywhere in the valley by the river is a good picnic spot. Easy for all to get to as the path is concrete. If you want more...More

One will never tire of taking the short walk to the falls. They are beautiful and during the winter offer beautiful rainbows when the sun is shining. See the upper Falls, see the lower falls and then walk the path back into the valley and...More

These falls are the most wonderful ones I’ve ever seen. We stayed at the lodge and just needed to walk outside to see them. We took a twenty minute walk up the fully paved path to the bottom of the lower falls. We spent a...More

Visiting Upper and Lower Yosemite Falls is worth it. Both can be viewed easily by minimal hiking for those who don't have the stamina or time to do the entire Upper Yosemite Falls Hike. My sister and I did not have the time to to...More

We only allowed ourselves one day in Yosemite but I could have spent a whole week here! The only problem is the parking or lack of it ,we got there before 9 and it still took us almost 2 hours to find a spot.

Beautiful 3 tier waterfall that is absolutely magical to behold. Plenty of photo opportunities at the base of the falls with fallen logs and rocks. There's also a picnic area/restroom near the base that is positioned so perfectly that the falls are framed by trees...More

The lower falls is a short walk to the viewing area. He should have no problem with that. I think you have to hike to the top of the falls for the "upper," which would be too much. Park your car and take advantage of the... More
