Ascending Above the Merced

Trail Thoughts and Musings

In many places the trail must cling to the canyon wall as it attempts to keep pace with the tumultuous Merced river. Here the trail builders have provided a picturesque stone wall to protect the hiker. It is touches like this, along with the majestic beauty of the falls, that make this the popular trail that it is.
