Enjoyable walk
7/2019
Walking in Yosemite valley trail is an enjoyable walk. As you walk through the valley, there are nice views around trees, mountains and static water where people do boating and swimming. As you walk along, you will see many bikers and there is a separate trail for them. We walked for a good time and enjoyed. Good place for family picnic.

This trail is easy, you can have a leisure walk there, you can see the iconic features, the Yosemite falls, when you walk this trail, Some people may bike along the trail. It's also a good choice besides walking on foot.

Walking the Yosemite Valley Loop Trail is very enjoyable. We walked parts of the Loop, not all of it, as we visited the Yosemite Falls along the way, and had a picnic on the Cathedral Beach. Lots of fun!

Get away from the crowds

Firstly, despite other reviews, this is NOT a bike trail! It’s a hiking trail . Bikes are restricted to paved trails. I hiked the whole loop and it’s a wonderful way to see the main sights and yet avoid the herd. APart from when the trail crosses parking lots I only met half a dozen people all day. I stopped by the river and watched deer crossing, I saw bear scat, and watched in awe as climbers scaled El Cap. It was a hot day, but nearly the trail was shaded luckily, the trail is marked, but you do need a map, There are hardly any paved areas. I think some reviews confuse the bike trails with the loop. Parts of the loop are stony and involve some climbing. I also found it to be much longer than 13 miles. My Garmin said 17! I had a WONDERFUL day and saw the park in all its magnificence. There are even sections where you escape the car noise and feel as if you are the only person for miles and miles.

Nice trail

We didn’t do the whole loop, but kept running into it on our stops. The parts we walked were well maintained, well marked, not overly crowded and clean. We were out on the trail one day and stopped to take a picture, boy I could say that a lot, and it was so quiet and peaceful. So make sure you stop and see the wildfires and here the wind rustle the top of the tall pine trees.

Easy hiking or biking trail

This is a nice and easy trail that meanders around the valley floor. You can stop at a number of beaches along the way and get a good hike in at the same time.

Probably better when cooler but feeling good for doing it

Hot day to walk, about 90 degrees. We did half the walk, crossed over at El Capitan’s bridge. 7.7 miles in total. Not much tree cover, so pretty hot walking. Great views of the key sights. We swam at Sentinel beach in the way back, fabulous and refreshing. Be warned, no water except at lodge area and in Yosemite Village. There are the odd long drop toilets marked on the map. We took 5 hours, but stopped lots.

A great way to get away from the crowds

I walked different sections of the Valley Loop Trail on two different days in June. It was hard to stay on the Valley Loop Trail headed west from Curry Village. In some places, the trail seemed to disappear. In some places, the bike trail was an easier choice. Eventually I got to the Chapel where I enjoyed the view and then hopped on the shuttle at Stop 11. Another day I began the loop from Lower Yosemite Falls headed east. There were just a few other hikers on this section. I loved the peek-a-boo views of Yosemite Falls, Yosemite Valley, and Half Dome. The oak trees created wonderful shade and the squirrels were all around. I stopped briefly at the Ahwahnee Hotel, then continued east. I enjoyed walking past the Royal Arches Cascade and then the Royal Arches. I continued all the way to Mirror Lake and then walked that trail up to the Snow Lake Trail junction. I was surprised by a few cyclists on this pedestrian-only trail. One cyclist said this was a suggested detour as the bike path was underwater, and two different cyclists seemed to be local employees on their own bikes either commuting to work or just riding for fun.
