Wapama Falls on Hetch Hetchy Trail, Yosemite




Hetchy FallsWapama Falls (1,400 feet)

Flows: all year, with peak flow in May.

Relatively few people visit Hetch Hetchy Valley to see this roaring waterfall. In some springs, the water from this fall flows over the footbridges near its base.

You can see this waterfall from the parking lot at O’Shaughnessy Dam or you can hike on an uneven trail to near its base (see a list of Hetch Hetchy day hikes).


  1. Beautiful. I lived in Stockton California for three years and it wasn’t until after I moved away that I learned Stockton was less than a three hour drive to Yosemite. I couldn’t believe it. I know I’ll get there someday.
