The Yosemite Valley has so much to offer; but, you have to do at least one hike through the Cook's Meadow to get away from the crowds and truly appreciate it. The trail is an easy, flat walk with amazing views of Yosemite Falls, Half Dome, Glacier Point, and Sentinel Rock all in this little short, one-mile loop.
Here, the breathtaking Yosemite Falls rises above Cook's Meadow in early spring. Yosemite Falls is the highest waterfall in Yosemite National Park, dropping a total of 2,425 feet (739 m) from the top of the upper fall to the base of the lower fall. This spot is a major attraction in the park, especially in late spring when the water flow is at its peak.
