This hike is super easy and wonderful, you can even bring your jogging stroller or bike right up to the falls. It's a beautiful stroll and great for everyone. We walked through the Meadow Loop on the valley floor and then walked right up to the trail for Yosemite Falls, after this we braked for lunch at the Awahnee Hotel. I highly recommend lunch here. The dining room is one of the most beautiful sights I've seen, and the food was fabulous. Be sure you try one of their homemade Italian sodas, I loved the chocolate flavor.
