One the favourite hikes in Yosemite Valley National Park is the Mist Trail from Happy Isles bus stop up to Vernal Falls and beyond to the Nevada Falls. The first section is a 1.3km steady climb to the Vernal Footbridge, 122m elevation. About 300m further on the Mist Trail diverges from the John Muir Trail, which takes a more roundabout route to the higher Nevada Falls. A little further up the Mist Trail one can take a small track that leads to a group of rocks on the river that provides this view of the Vernal Falls and the tumbling waters below them.

The Mist Trail continues on another 0.8km to the falls by means of a steep granite stairway with over 600 steps, a total elevation of 366m from the start of the trail at Happy Isles. On the right of this image, one can see tiny figures of people making their way up the trail, which give some idea of the scale of the waterfall.
