Hiking Trail

One of the park’s hidden gems, the Chilnualna Falls Trail takes you to a stunning waterfall and wadeable pool. This trail is outside the Yosemite Valley and can be a good option if you’re looking to avoid the crowds. The Chilnualna Falls Trail follows an out and back route. Because of its length and steep switchbacks, most hikers consider this a hard hike. The falls at the top of the trail have stone steps and a small pool which hikers occasionally wade in during warmer weather.
