Lower Yosemite Falls is boisterous, and during a year of high water volume, you may find yourself getting wet as you gaze at this famous waterfall and listen to the amazing noise all the pounding water makes. John Muir wrote about "Moonbows," the rainbows created here by the full moon during April and May. Even without this phenomenon, the falls are lovely and worth the easy half-mile round-trip hike. This walk is likely to be crowded in summer. There is wheelchair access with assistance, and the trail is open all year. For your safety it is recommended that you take this hike during daylight hours.
- Open Hours: Monday to Sunday from 12:00 AM to 12:00 AM
