June 23, 2009 01:21PM
Valley Floor Loop (moderate, but may be a little snowy or icy in winter and the trail may be hard to find under snow)

Full loop: 13 miles/20.9 km loop; 5 to 7 hours
Half loop: 6.5 miles/10.5 km; 2.5 to 3.5 hours

Begin at Camp 4 (shuttle stop #7)

This trail follows many of the Valley's first east-west trails and wagon raods. The half-loop trail crosses the Merced River on El Capitan Bridge. Continue on to Bridalveil Fall for the full loop. The Valley Floor Loop provides solitude with occasoinal route-finding difficulty. Hike through meadows, forests, and along the Merced River. Along the way, enjoy views of Sentinel Rock, Cathedral Rocks, El Capitan, Three Brothers, Bridalveil Fall, and Yosemite Falls
