Another great day hike that is relatively close to Fresno. Not too crazy on terrain and elevation gain. Sites are somewhat nice all around. I'd say a great starter trail.

I really enjoyed this trail back in May of 2016 for Memorial Day weekend. Snow pack still on the ground in some places, but trail and markers were easy to navigate. This was my first family back backing adventure. I see this hike being great for hikers of all skill sets. Want to do again and go deeper into the Dinkey Lakes Wilderness.

I hiked this trail back in April and there was still snow pack for the top half of the hike.

I liked that this trail was easy to moderate and definitely can be considered a day hike. The views of shaver lake and the surrounding sierras are beautiful at the top. I recommend this hike for all levels.

This was a great hike and run! We completed it 11.26.16. Hiked up and ran most of the way down just because. My GPS/Run tracker said it was 10.34 out and back

This is definitely not a beginner hike due to the majority of the trail being uphill. I did this hike on Black Friday Nov 25th 2016. There was snow on more than half of the trail and the high was 38 degrees. It took me a little over 4 hours to get to the top and about 3 hours to descend. I am a beginner, but I was also determined. I'd recommend starting at dawn or doing an overnight somewhere on the loop. Part of my hustle back and forth was I did this solo and I did not want to be on the trail after dark. Started at 9:30am and got back to my vehicle just a few meters from the trailhead at 5:20pm... I'm ready to do this hike again but probably in the spring or summer.

Fun for the family, teenagers too!!

Pretty easy, pretty waterfall

A little confusing about where the trail head was. No sign. There is a good sized dirt lot to park in and then you cross the street to the trail, just follow along the aqueduct. Easy enough for my 6 yr old though he started complaining about being tired around 4.5 miles.

Beautiful hike!

easy trail for kids. loved it.

Great day trail, easy but with beautiful scenery.

It was a nice little hike close to bass lake where we were staying. Waterfall was kinda slim.

avoid gnats if you can

Great trail + camping, trail is only open June-Oct though.

I believe it's only open June 15- Nov 1.

Great trail. Will be doing it again soon. Weather was not good on the first day so the trip ended at west lake, but I will do the full trail next time.
