This time we hiked from the bottom of the valley to the very top of Yosemite Falls, the Yosemite Point.
As stated on NPS website (also used to have a hilarious warning about heights):
Yosemite Falls Trail leads to the top of North America’s tallest waterfall, which rises 2,425 feet (739 m) above the Valley floor.
Don’t bring along any friends whose medication has led them to believe they can fly.
The hike starts at the bottom of the valley and takes ridiculous amount of twists and turns and switchbacks on the way up.
Final section of is even steeper than the one that ends at Lower Fall.
All trails were covered with water, streams were everywhere, this winter was quite snowy so when temperatures went up all that snow began to actively melt. Good for us, waterfalls were very strong at that moment.
The views from the top are super-rewarding. Perfect spot to restore your breath and relax before taking a way down.
Overall the hike is quite strenuous, majority of it you basically just climb various kinds of flatter and steeper steps, some small parts of the trail are relatively flat though.
