Yosemite Falls is the tallest falls in North America at an impressive 2,425 feet. The trail to Yosemite Upper Falls has steep sections containing switchbacks. There are steep drop-offs to the east of the trail and therefore it is important to stay on trail; the trail is well maintained and this should not be an issue. In exposed sections there are metal railings in place to enhance trail safety. The vegetation along the trail consists of large shrubs and trees in some places, but it is mostly exposed which allows for excellent views of Yosemite Valley, Half Dome, and Yosemite Falls. A platform was constructed at the mouth of upper falls allowing for remarkable views that would otherwise not be seen.
