A nice hike through the Tokopah valley. Lots of rocks and boulders in the last quarter mile - make sure to wear proper footwear. The falls weren't exactly gushing in mid-August, but it was still nice to reach them. Saw a large marmot trying to find an unattended backpack at the end.

Not much of a hike - it is a two minute walk up a path from the parking lot - but a great place to watch sunset. My five year old son loved exploring the rock.

Good trail. Nice to see rangers working on it. Beautiful flowers, saw some bear scat, saw deer, saw a marmot at the end. The falls is really disappointing. Lowest I've seen in a decade.

Very easy and beautiful hike! Great views from the meadows up at the canyon. I hiked in the meadow and did some scrambling on the big rocks above the river. Would definitely go back again!

This is a perfect little day hike, easy and cool terrain. Though it was a very busy trail as I went in high visiting season. I went i mid-July so the falls weren't as big-I'd suggest to try and go in spring/early summer if you can!

I completed this trail in April. Water was running through the campgrounds and down part of the trail. Lots of snow melt. Ran into a marmont on the rocks by the falls. Really fun hike and pretty easy. I recommend hiking shoes but saw many people and kids in tennis shoes.

Great Trail! Lots of ferns and shaded areas. The bridge is still down passed Bailey’s Bridge. Bring a lot of bug spray and I highly suggest mosquito nets, they are BAD!

Good trail for families. Nothing too steep but lots of rocks for kids, and adults, to climb on at the end. Gorgeous falls in Spring and Summer.

Nice little trail from Lodgepole. Just a trickle coming down the falls this time of year but still beautiful.

So beautiful. I got to go back! Got here too late.

5 stars for the beautiful scenery along the trial, minus 1 star for the disappointing falls itself in summer. Easy trial along the flowing river, enjoyable with kids and pets.

This place is beautiful and peaceful! It starts off at a waterfall. Looks a little to dangerous to get in. There are lots of nats and mosquitos since you’re walking along a pretty little river but, my bug spray from Walmart worked just fine. I fell in love with the meadow , there’s a wood walkway that takes you through it. We recorded 6.8 miles because we walked the whole thing and went around a extra loop at the end(by accident). My son is 9, it was his first hike and he did very well! This place is definitely a must see. (Also someone stole my go-pro from the bridge please return it

So, the description is misleading. This hike isn’t actually long at all. You can drive your car up most of the way to a parking area (would suggest a SUV, our corolla had a hard time). With that said, the short hike to the falls was beautiful, being high in the mountains meant it wasn’t too hot, and the falls itself was a little crowded. Overall worth a stop when exploring the area!

Nice easy hike that’s relatively flat the entire way. The highlight of this trail is Bailey’s Bridge. Lots of sandy river bed areas to enjoy a break and a swim. We started at the trailhead by the Road’s End ranger station and went up to Mist Falls. After descending from Mist Falls, we decided to return by taking the other half of the loop on the south side of the river. Lots of gnats and mosquitoes though.

The trail itself is quite beautiful and easy with a steady uphill out and steady downhill on the back. There is one area that has a rocky outcropping that can be difficult. We started early on a Saturday. Unfortunately, there was a group that had 70 or so people in it, so it was way too crowded with trash left all over the place. I’d do this trail again, but during off season.

Hiked this with my parents and kids. An easy day hike that gives you great valley views and meanders along a beautiful stream. Trail ends at a waterfall- there is a great rock to jump from into a deep pool. The river has many places to wade in and cool off, where he water makes natural slides over the granite bed

Beautiful easy trail. If you have kids, it’s best to drive up the dirt road and start where the parking lot is. Dirt road is a little rough if you don’t have a SUV or truck. But beautiful waterfall at the end. My kids enjoyed it even my 4 year old.

I think it some type of steps and / or handrails could be constructed to facilitate a safer decent to the waterfalls pools. Other than that, it is an easy surface to negotiate on the trail and a scenic hike also!

Such a beautiful hike surrounded by towering granite walls and the sound of the river accompanying us along the way. Very easy walk although we recorded 4.9 miles and 387 ft of elevation. A minor negative were the gnats that seemed immune to bug spray. Highly recommend this hike that all fitness levels can enjoy. 8/4/2018

Quiet during weekdays. Lower pool is easily accessible from the trail. Some scramble to the top of the falls.

Short and simple, with a very rewarding waterfall

Good family hike with a nice view at the end.

Dirt road entry is pretty rough but the walk is very nice.

Sun exposure first 1/3 of trail, then easy shaded walk until last .2 miles with narrow path through rocks. Can rock scramble at end, though waterfall is minimal in late July. Went with 10mo on back and 6+8 year olds - we all did fine though was nearing our limit. Kids played in river afterwards, should have brought swimsuits. Moderate traffic on a Sunday afternoon when Yosemite was closed due to fire.

Easy walk. Loved the beautiful falls!

A great little hike - especially if you're staying at the Lodgepole campground, this is a must-do.
We had done the General Sherman to Moro Rock hike in the morning and and with nothing much to do later in the day, I went to see the Tokopah Falls. The hike itself is easy and mostly flat. However, once you get to the falls, you can scramble up if you chose to, which is fun and can be a bit trickier. The waterfall itself was still pretty impressive beginning of June but I suspect it might be more of a trickle later in summer. That said, the views of the glacial valley will be amazing any time of year, so if you find yourselves in the area and have 2 hours to spare, definitely give this hike a shot.
As for wildlife, I saw some marmots at the falls but that's about it.

took my hunny it was very pretty

So easy and so spectacular! Wildlife is very present here so be careful. Definitely a must see when the sun is rising or setting though.

My favorite hike of our vacation. Beautiful scenery.

We arrived at 8 AM on a Thursday at the end of July and the parking lot was half full.

This is a beautiful trail, but I don’t think it should be rated as “easy.” The views are amazing throughout the entire hike! Wild flowers, massive granite cliffs, evergreens and tons of swimming holes. The waterfalls is a bit of a dud this time of year, but still beautiful. Definitely recommend this hike.
