Cook's Meadow Loop Reviews & Ratings

  • This is an awesome mostly flat day hike/ walk trail. And mostly shady along the way which makes it even more pleasant. And be prepared to get your feet wet in a nice little stream you cross over. Nice little bike ride.

  • Nice winding hike if you don't mind taking the longer route to Yosemite Falls from the shuttle drop off point. The route goes to the right. You'll end up going full circle once you get to the fall. Go left, the road is paved and wide, if you want to get there faster but you'll miss all the scenery unless you go all the way around.

  • Come in the late winter & bring a jacket! There was over 2' of snow in late March. The mist at Bridal Veil falls made my hands numb, I'll wear waterproof gloves next time. Wear snow boots or hiking boots so your not worried about water getting inside your sneakers. Why should you come before the spring? SMALL CROWDS & plentiful parking! :) After 2 pm I noticed more people, perhaps late arrivals? It wasn't hard to get people to stand back to let you take photos with your friends. There were enough people to ask someone to take your photo, but not so many people that it was hard to take photos. I saw plenty of hard core campers, sleeping in their tents in the snow! There was still some space for more tents & the RV sections had very few RV's.

  • A beautiful car stop but could get busy at times, with people trying to get pictures.

  • Best place to watch the climbers, especially at night when their lamps light up on El Cap.
