Great experience with the family!

beautiful valley hike. Lots of wildflowers and wildlife. I saw a bear off in the distance! Moderate traffic. This hike is a great hike to get some good pictures.

Perfect for camping with the family. We went for a hike absolutely beautiful.

Definitely would rank this as a moderate hike, the inclined parts are very steady and nothing too steep, making for an excellent day hike! The falls at the end are even more beautiful than the pictures, highly recommended!

Awesome hike during the winter!! light snow almost the whole time made for great pictures!! cold but worth it tread carefully with muddy trails and slippery rocks. Waterfall was amazing! huge reward at the end :)

We went up to check out this trail and loved it. We hit the trail and were excited to find snow had just started to fall. It was so pretty and peaceful.

Interesting hike , not sure why it says that you can bring dogs, you cannot. It is inside a National Park and it’s even signed not allowing dogs. That didn’t appear to stop the people we saw with dogs .
More importantly there is a new Brewery in Three Rivers that is the bomb! Great place to stop afterwards and get a drink and some food .

Good Hike. For a 1500 ft elevation gain , this trail had a gentle grade than most other comparable trails with similar elevation gains.

The trail is mostly shaded - about 75% and the falls at the end of the trail is delightful. Tons of water and very pretty. Lots of small and large cascades and falls - be prepared to spend some time here .

There are a lot of thorny plants along the way , so be mindful. Worth the effort on a winter day .

Hike is pretty easy and the bridge is really cool. I found a peaceful bolder and laid in the sun.

Great trail and cool temps helped make it very enjoyable. I would not recommend for the casual hiker. Trail is very narrow at times and rocky. Trek poles were very helpful. Falls were beautiful. Lots of great views along the way.

Trekking poles would be very good to bring on this trail a watch out for those pointy plants along the narrow steep path. Hard, but reward awaits at the end.

Friends saw a bear and I didn’t

This trail was recommended to me by a friend, he said it was pretty easy and roughly 5 miles round trip... That was a lie, it actually comes out to be 7.4 miles (3.7 eachway) but it was a beautiful trail and I would definitely do it again!

Be sure to grab the map at the welcome kiosk, the signs leave a little to be desired. We took 5 year olds, grandparents, and our dog for a lovely walk even though we had no clue where we were going. Ended up in the elderberry trail, did a loop around the 3/4 mile dirt exercise trail, and the trail off to the north and spent a few hours walking. Didn’t make it to the swamp.
I’d go when there is more green, lots of wintering trees and shrubs in January. Got some good birding in though: red tails, red shouldered hawk, and the largest crows I’ve ever seen.
Great for kids, bathrooms were clean pit style toilets and several places for a picnic at a table along the elderberry trail.

awesome trail!
nice swimming hole at the end.

A good winter hike. Too hot in the summer. Lower part has alot of brush, but gets good towards the top. Nice hike.

A nice flat hike. Some of the trails through the large Oak trees are closed due to the 2016 drought and some of the trees dying. They recently added restrooms. There are also picnic tables and a creek/canal.

I would say this hike was moderate. We took our whole family. Ages 7-40. The younger kids had a harder time. Fun creeks and some wildlife. I’m sure in the spring you will find more wild life. We went in the winter.

Great hike for December. Loved the water falls! Cold as.

Absolutely beautiful hike! My favorite hike ever! I've done at least a dozen times and I still enjoy it. During the spring, the snow melt makes for an amazing waterfall. The hike features break taking views of the river from start to finish. The trail is very narrow with a steep drop off, therefore I wouldn't suggest bringing dogs or young children. Any one who visits Sequoia should do this hike!

Beautiful views of the meadow and some sequoias.

Fun hike, the waterfalls and marble at the top made it very worth the hike. Would have had really good views if the air was more clear.

Did this trail in October. Still hard mosquitos, and was warm. Worth the hike.

Beautiful falls at the end really made the hike worth it

Went in early December. I would rate moderate not easy. You have to cross two rocky streams to keep on the trail. The farther you go the harder it gets. The trail was beautiful!

A great walk in the woods with incredible scenery. Not sure I would quite rate this hard but there are some narrow ledges with fairly big drops. Go slow and watch your step as you should do with any elevated hike. Highly recommended!

We went in late fall. Loved it. Look forward to doing it in spring.

Love this trail!!!
