If you are visiting the valley, the best way to visit this area is to go all the way to the day-use parking lot and take a shuttle. A lot of visitors are tempted to pull over as soon as they see something scenic. From the day-use parking lot, take the shuttle go to the Yosemite Falls stop. After visiting the Yosemite falls up, close and personal, come back to the bus-stop and cross the road. A very short trail will take you from the north-road to the south-road through the meadow. After a wooden bridge across the merced river and a boardwalk through the meadow, you will be at the south-road. You can continue walking all the way to bridalveil falls.

Walking on the meadows destroys them. Always use the trail or boardwalk and pay attention to the signboards that that ask visitors to keep away from areas of revegetation.

You can do a strenuous dayhike all the way to the top of Upper Yosemite falls from the 'backpacker's walk-in campground'. After another mile, you will reach Yosemite Point. Vistas of the valley are beautiful from various points on the trail and from Yosemite Point. Yosemite Point is located across the valley from Glacier Point at about the same elevation.
