The mighty Merced River begins in  Yosemite National Park and cuts its way from the back country through Little Yosemite Valley and cascades over the cliff below the granite done of Liberty Cap creating  Nevada Fall. This 594 foot waterfall is a Yosemite icon and a great hike. It’s often missed because when Matt Emerson WBNL Yosemite National Park Nevada Fallhiking from the Valley Floor you’ll get to experience the beautiful Vernal Fall and the Mist Trail first and most will make this their turn-around point. Don’t stop there, take the extra time to see the fall beyond the fall. The trail head is at Happy Isles, Shuttle Stop 16. This is a popular hike most times of the year so get an early start to beat the feet! You’ll be satisfied with the extra steps to the top of Nevada Fall, what a great place to wander.
