Yosemite Falls

Yosemite Falls (2,425 ft) is the highest measured waterfall in North America. Located in Yosemite National Park in the Sierra Nevada of California, it is a major attraction in the park, especially in late spring when the water flow is at its peak.

Flows: approximately 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, 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).

Yosemite Creek

Yosemite Lower Falls 

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 hike to the top of Yosemite Falls as a strenuous, all-day hike (its around 4 miles )
