    Great hike and the views from North Dome to the Valley are special.

    (based on my SUMMERTIME hike in 2019) Great hike if you stay overnight at the Little Yosemite camp. You MUST be conditioned for a very steep and rocky trail going UP, and UP, and UP. Passing the Mist trail part probably is not as difficult as getting up to the Saddle at the Half Dome, which is the smaller mountain before the cables begin. The steps there are very steep and nearly vertical, some are over 13 inch high. Take the hiking poles! Behind the camp, there is one majestic beach. Get a nice, refreshing dip in before you head back to the valley. Bears are more frequent around the camp area. There are bathrooms there. No water. Make sure to bring the water filter with you. I tested the quantity of 7 liters with me, and I did RUN OUT on the way back. This includes one meal cooking water usage. Mini filter is a MUST. Cables part is NOT difficult at all. There is no rush, and you can easily let the faster person pass you as you are taking a break. Mostly, you help and pull yourself up with your hands. Some are using the harness, but it is just a waste of time. Cables will take no more than 30 minutes. You can use hiking shoes or regular sneakers! There is no need for super shoes. Tracktion is a plus. I DO NOT RECOMMEND taking the Upper Yosemite Falls trail hike (starts at Camp 4) before going on Half Dome hike. I would consider it the most difficult one. It is super hot, a lot of open sun areas, very steep with rocky with sand switchbacks (zig-zagging). But the view is rewarding up there! Going back is probably more difficult and you may get blisters, blue toenails, twisted ankles, and hurting bones. It could get painful. I am a runner and a cyclist. Take my advice, take the Half Dome hike, first if it is your main hike. Finally, shoes are your most important equipment. Consider half a size larger than your standard size. Go to your local camp store, try them on. Descending usually is difficult and painful. It is all good until the first twisted ankle, first blister, or damaged toes. Then, the fun is gone and you must deal with the pain with your every step.

    A ranger friend sent an email alert that "Carlon Falls is spectacular," and it truly is. This is a fairly easy hike with a couple of short, steep sections that most folks can manage. It's worth it to walk to the upper falls. This is a cataract that tumbles in rapids and drops. After our wet winter of 2018/19, there were wildflower in late June, still. A shady, lovely walk along the Tuolumne River. About 4.72 miles RT from the Carlon Day Use area (with picnic tables & pit toilets).

    The hike gets more beautiful as you ascend the top, however, the difficulty will also increase substantially. The main prize was the waterfall which waits around the corner and once you break that corner the breeze and sight will amaze you. Highly recommended.

    Strenuous but worth it. Amazing view coming over Clouds Rest. Camped in little Yosemite valley area then did the cables early next morning. Unforgettable.

    Strenuous but worth it. The view coming up over clouds rest is incredible. Camping in little Yosemite valley area makes doing the cables in the morning pretty easy. Can’t recommend enough.

    Unbelievable Views. Relaxing if you camp one night on the trail.

    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.

    This is a relatively easy 5 mile out and back hike. The day started with rain and we even had some hail on the trail but overall the hike was sunny and warm. Lots of flowers from recent rain. The waterfalls were flowing strong and hard. Great and almost flat hike to intersperse with some of the harder Yosemite climbs.

    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!
