Vernal Falls Approach

Trail Thoughts and Musings

The trail quickly leaves the forest below as it traces its way along the slope of a rounded rock formation. Soon a closer view of the thundering falls appears from behind this formation. The sound of the falls is overpowering as the entire Merced River catapults over the granite ledge to drop 320 feet to the canyon floor below.
