Yosemite National Park Waterfalls

Yosemite National Park is home to countless waterfalls that are truly spectacular to behold, particularly in the spring when most of the snowmelt occurs.

Set Your Sights on Yosemite Falls

Visitors come from far and wide to see Yosemite Falls—the highest measured waterfall in North America, located in Yosemite National Park. Yosemite Falls (which measures 2,425 ft) flows approximately from November through July, with peak flow in May. Look for the ice cone at the base of the upper fall during winter and for roaring runoff April through June.

Yosemite Falls, one of the world's tallest waterfalls, is actually made up of three separate falls: Upper Yosemite Fall (1,430 feet), the middle cascades (675 feet) and Lower Yosemite Fall (320 feet).

You can see Yosemite Falls from numerous places around Yosemite Valley, especially around Yosemite Village and Yosemite Lodge. A one-mile loop trail leads to the base of Lower Yosemite Fall (the eastern side of the loop, from the shuttle stop to the base of the waterfall, is wheelchair accessible). It's also possible to reach the top of Yosemite Falls if you're up for an all-day strenuous hike.
