“If you go down into the woods today.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

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 busy which was nice compared to some of the main sights at sequoia

“Falls in the Winter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

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.

“Falls?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

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.

“Popular trail but heed the signs and don't go on the rocks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Great easy walk. At the end there is a very clear sign saying GO NO FURTHER. Sadly one family chose to ignore this and a child broke her arm. Luckily for them the Rangers came to the rescue!

“Hike from Lodgepole to Tokopah Falls”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Lovely hike -- only wish there was more water! Late in the season and we've been in a drought. Relatively easy trail -- 3.4 miles, and a round trip took about 2 hours (and I'm 70).
