Best Waterfall Hike
Mist Trail—Yosemite National Park, California
Most famous for its waterfalls, California’s Yosemite National Park is home to the seven-mile Mist Trail. True to its name, the trail takes you past Vernal Falls, where you will get wet, and on to Nevada Falls before looping back on the part of the John Muir Trail where you can see Liberty Cap and the famous granite Half Dome. Pick up the trailhead from Happy Isles, a group of small islands in the Merced River. Though it’s not the highest U.S. waterfall (Upper Yosemite Falls holds that title) Vernal Falls drops an impressive 317-feet and is more accessible, ideal for less intense hikers.
