Upper Yosemite Fall 7.2 miles/11.6 km round-trip; 6 to 8 hours; 2,700 ft/823 m elevation gain
Begin at the Upper Yosemite Fall Trailhead, Camp 4 (shuttle stop #7)

One of Yosemite oldest historic trails (built 1873 to 1877), the Yosemite Falls Trail leads to the top of North America’s tallest waterfall 2,425 feet (739 m) above the Valley floor. Do not stray off the marked path, as you will find steep drops adjacent to the trail. Enjoy spectacular views from Columbia Rock located one mile (and dozens of switchbacks) from the trailhead.

This is considered to be a one of the more strenuous  hikes in Yosemite. You should be in good physical shape before you attempt this hike.   You may experience little feet and leg pain so take comfortable shoes, a snack,  a camera and water and take it easy, remember this is a scenic hike and not a race.
