Jessie's thoughts:
There are tons of waterfalls but to miss out on the iconic Yosemite Falls would be a horrible mistake for anyone visiting this park. The trail is paved all the way to the base of the waterfall and a shuttle bus makes frequent stops at the trailhead so there is no excuse for missing out!
