Wapama Fall

Begin at O’Shaughnessy Dam – Parking available above at the overnight campground area or day use parking along the road.

This trail takes you to the base of Wapama Fall, passing two smaller waterfalls (during spring) on the way. This is also a good trail for wildflowers in spring. This trail is good all year, with peak waterfall 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.
