Did this short hike as an easy, evening stroll. The hike has the feel of walking through a huge city park (e.g., Central Park), with a broad, tree-lined, paved trail, raised footbridges over areas where spring run-off floods the area, and pull-out areas along the way with interpretive signs, etc.

We were very lucky that there was any water over the falls at this time of year. In fact, the rangers told us that the falls were dry the prior week, but that some heavy rains "revived" the falls temporarily. Glad we got to see it running. Also got a nice photo of the sun setting on Half Dome as we returned to the trailhead.

Afterwards, we drove down the road a bit to El Capitan, and sat in our camp chairs in the field next to the road and watched the a group of climbers scaling the cliff as the sun set.

Saying this is a beautiful area is an understatement.
