Three Chutes Falls

A little known waterfall in Yosemite is Three Chutes Falls. Also known as Hidden Falls, this waterfall is located about a half mile above mirror lake. It can be reached by walking the Mirror Lake Loop Trail and then hiking along Tenaya Creek for a quarter mile.

It cascades about forty feet over open granite then plunges in three chutes. the final plunge measures around eighty feet. It's very attractive and serene with little or no people around.
