Yosemite's waterfalls are mesmerizing, especially when the spring runoff turns them into thunderous cataracts (most are reduced to a trickle by late summer). Yosemite Falls is considered the tallest waterfall in North America, dropping 740m (2425ft) in three tiers. A slick new trail leads to the bottom or, if you prefer solitude, you can also clamber up Yosemite Falls Trail, which puts you atop the falls after a grueling 5.5km (3.4mi).

No less impressive are nearby Bridalveil Fall and others scattered throughout the valley.
