2: Yosemite Falls, Yosemite National Park, California
For our number two spot, we simply had to showcase the magnificent Yosemite Falls, the tallest Waterfall in the U.S. It’s actually a combination of three falls, with the tallest at 1430 feet high, known as Upper Yosemite Fall. The Lower Yosemite Falls is also over 320 feet tall!
Luckily, it can be observed from many places in the Yosemite Valley, so you can pick a hiking trail you’re most comfortable with. Just make sure to also visit the Yosemite Lodge and Yosemite Village while you’re at it!
Of course, if you’d like to get up close and personal with this magnificent waterfall, there are plenty of escorted hikes you can join!
