At 2,425 ft, Yosemite Falls is North America's tallest waterfall. The sight of this magnificent set of waterfalls plunging to the ground often stops people in their tracks, especially in spring. By walking the Lower Falls Trail you and your pup can get up-close and personal with the lower 320-ft of this spectacular natural wonder. Just imagine the photos you can bring back of you and your pooch and a thundering waterfall behind you. It's a short trail that will allow you to stretch your legs and be mesmerized by this incredible natural site.
The trail is accessible in winter, but the adventurous explorers who brave the cold will need to be prepared. The spray and mist from the Lower Falls can freeze on the walkway, making the trail cold and icy. Make sure you wear proper footwear and yak tracks. It might also be beneficial for your dog to wear winter boots with traction too and a warm coat to keep the mist from freezing on his fur.
The best time to see the falls in all their glory is in the spring when the winter run-off makes the rivers swollen and fast. However, if your dog is not so much a fan of the mist, the fall might be more enjoyable for him when the water is running slower. Either way, make sure you both have the appropriate gear to get a little wet and bring a camera for a picture worth remembering.
