we hiked this trail during our visit to Sequoia….the terrible drought in California has reduced the Falls to a trickle but it was still a great hike and we came nose to nose with an 8 point buck who regarded us nonchalantly as we passed within 6 feet of him. A great hike in a great park!

This was a VERY long walk to what we thought would be some magnificent falls, but alas, the California drought had dried them up. The views were absolutely spectacular which makes me want to bump up the rating, but no falls....darn!

This trail starts out gently enough, only to end with a climb up a "trail" literally blasted out of the rock. It definitely requires stepping carefully, especially if you're not wearing good hiking boots. The falls themselves are pretty with just.a little water flowing. I'm sure they're quite impressive when there's more water. You may well see others climbing beyond... More

We started on the trail and it was beautiful trail along the river and after 1/8 of a mile, my daughter wanted to go play in the river like others were doing so we skipped the falls and dipped our toes in the water. From those who were coming down told us that at the end it's all uphill and... More

While the trail starts at the busy campsite, it quickly gave way to a quiet easy pace trail on which we were able to see a Marmot, a mama bear and her cubs, several chipmunks, squirrels, and a myriad of birds!

Well worth the hike to see the falls. Lots of wild flowers and scenic views of the river. NPS rates this as an easy hike. I would rate it as moderate due to incline and one section requires navigating over large rocks. Easy for a fit person, but we saw folks early in the hike that I seriously doubted would... More

And I think to myself...What a wonderful world:) We had an amazing time. What an Adventure to visit this place. My family enjoy the scenery...gorgeous!!! Highlight was the hike to Tokopah Trail to see the waterfall. We arrived at 9:30 am, in the parking lot my daugther said, Mom! There is something furry out there. And it was a young... More

The hike to Tokopah Falls was to us one of the more enjoyable hikes in Sequoia. Park in the back of the Lodgepole Campground lot to access it. It is a relatively easy hike, about 3.4 miles round trip with very little grade. A very pretty waterfall awaits you at the end. Along the way we saw many black lizards,... More

We stayed at Three Rivers at Comfort Inn(nice and only one decent hotel in the area) while visiting Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks. It is a very small town with no shopping malls, bad cell phone connection, yet it has it's own beauty.Nice, small pizza place across the street from Comfort Inn. Nice small town. Very peaceful getaway. Tokopah... More
