Description

Visitors who prefer solitude with their Yosemite waterfalls should check out this cascade that's decidedly off the tourist circuit. The water in Foresta Falls descends a total of about 200 feet, but the part that's most accessible and safe to reach is the still-impressive 60 foot cascade that flows in a wide spray across rocky ledges. A picturesque bridge bisects the falls adding rustic interest to photos taken here. The best time to visit is during the spring runoff or after a large rainstorm. Despite its proximity to the Valley, you're likely to have this area to yourself since it is such a little-known spot.

Short Run: From the private town of Forest, take the Foresta Falls Trail on an old dirt road about 0.8 miles to the falls.
