Great Rugged Waterfall

This waterfall doesn't feature any tall drops, but that certainly doesn't make it any less of an awesome spot. There are many trails and viewpoints that let you view this wide and powerful waterfall push its way through the deep Mather Gorge. A few trails lead you down the rocks and out to the water, but keep in mind, swimming is not permitted.
