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

I fell in love with this hike because no one was there and the view was spectacular. We saw some cool wildlife and the falls were great!

My friends and I visited Tokopah falls during winter when the trail was under about a foot of snow. Luckily there were still remaining footprints of a few others who made the trip before us and lead us the way. The river was flowing nicely which was a good sign, meaning the waterfall was flowing as well. The trail itself... More

This was an amazing hike! The best hike I have ever done for wildlife! We saw a black bear that was about 60feet off the trail, we watched and took pictures and he didn't even care. As we continued along we saw a brown bear with a cub strolling through the forest about the same distance away. There was a... More

It's not often you can find an easy hike that leads to such a beautiful view of falls. It's pretty heavily trafficked, so if you like to be a lone hiker not for you. But if you want to see beautiful rushing water for easy, do this. There's a nice pool at the top you can wade in, too. It... More

This hiking path starts within a campground and was pretty crowded by my standards. We saw a mama bear and her twins on one side of the path as we went towards the falls and then on the other as we retuned. We saw a young buck, a family of marmots and lots of birds. The hike was relatively easy... More

I returned on this hike after 3 years. This time my trip was in summer-the waterfall was not quite as powerful, but it was still beautiful. This time instead of seeing a coyote and marmots, we saw marmots, lizards, deer, and pheasants. This hike is good for families, but it can get crowded because it's right off of Lodgepole campground.... More

Our first hike after arriving at Sequoia and just a few minutes along the trail we spotted a bear snacking on the opposite side of the river. We had to stop for a while to watch him and take a few photos. The hike itself is pretty good and the falls when you get there worth looking at. Not too... More

There was plenty of water even in the winter. A nice hike with a scenic view and gentle water sounds. The hike was a perfect pick for to burn some calories right before lunch.

It was a nice walk in the forest (deer, bears, ...) but unfortunately there was no water in the river, which is a bit of a downer for a waterfall. Never mind, next time come in Spring.
