Moderate to difficult hike. Very scenic. Can see half dome, vernal falls and Nevada falls. We did not akeem it to Nevada falls. Couple of places have bathrooms and place to fill water bottles.

The 0.8 miles to the footbridge is mostly uphill so quite strenuous but the magnificent views all the way up make it worthwhile

We hiked up the mist trail to the Vernal & Nevada Falls. The mist trail up to the foot bridge is paved and very steep. Not an easy walk up, but doable for most. We reached the top of the Vernal falls with minimal spray...More
We passed mist trail and falls at the end of a longer hike from Glacier point down the panorama and mist trails. It was really amazing. We hiked down the trail which was pretty hard on the knees - however it would be more challenging...More
