At 2,420 feet, Yosemite Falls is the tallest measured waterfall in North America. For years Yosemite Falls was considered the world's sixth highest waterfall, but with the discovery of Gocta Cataracts it now appears as the seventh highest on some lists. Regardless, it is truly one spectacular sight! The waterfall consists of three sections: the Upper Fall (1,430 feet), Middle Cascades (670 feet), and Lower Fall (320 feet). The Middle Cascades can hardly be seen from the valley floor and is best seen if you hike up the Yosemite Falls Trail. The Upper and Lower sections are easily viewed and photographed from the valley floor.
