Waterfalls! Which ones in early April?

We've got two full days in the park. Which waterfalls will be accessible that time of year? Favorite ones?

Accessible? To see, to walk to the base or, to walk to the top of? Obviously you'll be able to see most falls (e.g., Yosemite Falls, Bridalveil Falls) even from the roads. And walk quickly to the base of most. Mist Falls and Nevada Falls take some walking to see, but not much, and mostly flat, and unless there's a big storm you should be able to walk to the base of those and even to the top. Likely a matter of fitness to get to the top, especially Nevada Falls, not snow. I have hiked to the top of Yosemite Falls in March, but don't know what conditions you'd face this year. I wouldn't worry in advance. When you go to the park, decide, based on weather, your fitness, etc.

Mist Falls? Mist Trail to Vernal Falls.

If you walk to Vernal Falls you will see Illilouette Falls in front of you and to your right unless you hike there. Also in April you will see water flowing out of everywhere and there will be falls that appear only at this time of year like Ribbon Falls. These can be seen from right in the valley - no hiking needed.
