Few things say Yosemite National Park like Yosemite Falls.

This entry in the Yosemite Icon series celebrates the booming harbinger of spring that has long delighted outdoor adventurers, nature lovers, and waterfall buffs alike.

Plunging more than 2400 feet to the floor of Yosemite Valley, Yosemite Falls is an accessible wonder, popular with hikers, international visitors, and fans of its famous splash zone. With three cascades that feature in millions of photographs, Yosemite Falls is a must-do pilgrimage for anyone who considers themselves a waterfall connoisseur. The sixth tallest waterfall on earth, renowned for its "moonbows," and loaded with both smooth paths and challenging hikes--what's not to love? And while its booming voice can be heard across the Valley during peak flow, Yosemite Falls changes with the seasons, giving it an air of mystery that keeps visitors coming back.

Each slim yet elegant title in the Yosemite Icon series gathers stunning photos and insider information to tell the story of one of the park's celebrated landscape elements. Replete with natural and human history, these books are equally enjoyable both at home and on trails: Pop them in your backpack as on-the-go guides or peruse them from your couch to remember your favorite features between visits.


  • All about the falls, or Where does the water go?
  • Connecting with your favorite waterfall
  • The best spots for capturing the view
  • Taking care while you're there
  • Fascinating facts and insider tips
