The Hetch Hetchy Valley sits near the western corner of Yosemite, submerged under the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir. Backed up by O’Shaughnessy Dam, the Tuolumne River now floods the Valley. The dam was built in 1914 to provide a water supply to San Francisco. It raised the water level 312 feet above the riverbed, which extends up the valley more than eight miles. The hike to Wapama Falls begins from O’Shaughnessy Dam at the west end of the reservoir. A well maintained trail follows the reservoir’s north shore. The trail passes the 1,000-foot wispy ribbon of seasonal Tueeulala Falls en route to the base of the wide and thick Wapama Falls on Falls Creek. The raging whitewater of Wapama Falls plummets 1,400 feet over a granite precipice and tumbles into the reservoir. Watch for rattlesnakes.
