    Lots of up and down on this one – go only about halfway up for the best view of the falls. You don’t really see the falls from the top at all - but the view from the top more than compensate. As usual, a little bit harder to go down than up - you don’t expend the energy, but you do spend a lot of effort looking for the right foot plant. Decomposing granite on top of the regular granite boulders can make spots very slippery.

    Great half day trip! Unbeatable view from on top of the falls! Start early to avoid the heat and people. Bring a gallon of water and feel your legs the next morning!
