Yosemite Falls is visible from numerous places around Yosemite Valley, especially around Yosemite Village and Yosemite Lodge. A one-mile loop trail leads to the base of Lower Yosemite Fall


America's Best Idea – the national parks – gets even better with several fee-free days at more than 100 national parks that usually charge entrance fees*.
Visit one of your national parks on Veterans Day, November 11, 2010, and you won't be charged an entrance fee.
And making the fun even more affordable, many national park concessioners are joining the National Park Service in welcoming visitors with their own special offers.
We'll post the complete list of fee-free days in 2011 shortly. In the meantime, you can mark your calendar for these fee-free days in 2011:
  • April 16-24, 2011
    (National Park Week)
  • September 24, 2011
    (Public Lands Day)
  • November 11, 2011
    (Veterans Day)

Here’s a tip – many of your 393 national parks NEVER charge an entrance fee. So start Planning Your Visit!

*Fee waiver includes: entrance fees, commercial tour fees, and transportation entrance fees. Other fees such as reservation, camping, tours, concession and fees collected by third parties are not included unless stated otherwise.
