Create an itinerary including Tokopah Falls
Tokopah Falls, also known as Tokopah Valley Falls, is a 1,200-foot (370 m) cascading waterfall in Sequoia National Park, California. The falls are formed as the Marble Fork of the Kaweah River slides down a huge granite headwall of the glacial Tokopah Valley. Although the falls flow powerfully during the snow melt of late spring and early summer, it is usually a trickle by autumn, occasionally drying up completely during poor snow years.

The falls are accessible by a fairly flat 4.1-mile (6.6 km) roundtrip hike from Highway 198.

  • Beautiful trail. We enjoyed it thoroughly even though the falls themselves (at the end of the trail) were dry. You should not leave Sequoia National Park without experiencing the beauty of this...

  • Went with a group of 9 (which included kids from 9-17 years old as well as folks in the upper 40s). Such a beautiful hike that was not difficult, but had amazing views.

  • Water level was low (mid-July), but still a beautiful hike with stunning scenery. Our bear encounter came courtesy of a few careless hikers who went for a quick dip in the river and left their belongings unattended. We saw them hiding in the bushes while a bear went through their backpacks looking for a snack. For you anglers, a few trout were spotted in the pool at the bottom of the falls.
  • The hike kicked my butt.. I thought we'd never get there but we'll worth it. It was a 1.5 to 2 hour hike fir me and yes, I'm a bit overweight, but I was determined as I know you are as well. This place is absolutel magnificent!
