Nevada Falls Junction
Nevada Falls is often cited as the tallest waterfall on the John Muir Trail. I have no reason to argue with this point, except to say that there are a *LOT* of waterfalls along the JMT! Even more during a high precipitation year where spontaneous waterfalls will tumble over canyon walls, fed by the rapidly melting snow.
As you descend to Nevada Falls, enjoy the view of liberty cap across the way. Above the falls you will cross the river on a footbridge.
If you took the alternate trail along the north side of the River from Vernal Falls, this is where you will join up with the JMT again.
There is a restroom available at this junction.
