“Just a short walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

It's a nice stop along the road. Just a short walk from the parking area. Everyone seems to stop here for a few minutes and grab a photo.

“Make the Stop...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We felt this was more of a stop than a hike; it was a short distance from the parking lot to the falls. It won't take long at all. We had the falls to ourselves on a September afternoon; it was nice to just sit and enjoy.

Certainly there are better waterfalls in the sierras, but since you are there and it is right off the road - just make the stop!

“Best Falls in the canyon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Mist falls better but that is an 8 mile round trip. these are close to the road. I did not like the tarmacked trail all the way. Ok for people with poor mobility but for me tarmac in a wild environment destroys the atmosphere and the environmental experience.

“Big falls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

It was a very short hike to the falls and even in September when there wasn't much water elsewhere there was still a good flow over these falls! You can walk down the rocks right to the water. Beautiful place to rest and cool down

“Beautiful waterfalls and surrounding pool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

So tempting to just jump in the water, but I knew the current wasn't safe. Beautiful scenery. Makes you wish your lungs could hold more air for the big sighs you take while there.
