The vandalism along the trail varied in different sizes, the smallest being a foot long to the largest being eight feet wide.

Park rangers are encouraging those who might have been on the trail of Yosemite Falls between 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. on May 20 and potentially saw people carrying spray paint cans or tagging, or if they have any video or photographic evidence to go to go.nps.gov/SubmitATip.
