This seven mile round trip hike takes you by two spectacular waterfalls. The first part of the trail is known as the Mist Trail (closed in the winter), named for all the spray coming off of Vernal Falls...the trail is literally wet and you will be too after climbing it. The second part takes you up to Nevada Falls and then you can loop back around by the John Muir trail. It's steep and absolutely worth it.
Go early to miss the crowds.
