Short and steep hike takes you partway up to Upper Yosemite Falls and offers breathtaking views of the falls itself and the valley below.

 The Columbia Rock Trail can be accessed from Camp 4--it is the same as the Upper Yosemite Falls Trail. It entails a lot of switchbacks, so be prepared to climb! It's short and steep, offering breathtaking views at the top.
