It was a bit of an adventure, it is a beautiful trail but unfortunately we got lost half way since the map on alltrails did not correspond with reality, so we scrambled up a wet and steep rocky hill. The right way is to take a LEFT once you see a sign called "Whiskey Log Camp", although the trail map says that you should continue for a while. The new path will at first sight seem to turn back the wrong way, but it will make a U-turn and take you in the right direction. The trail is longer than it seems too, we walked for 10.5 miles (incl. max 0.5 miles as a detour) into wild forest. Be sure to bring food, but leave no trace :) Some snow and wet ground in the far end of the trail, with a couple of trees to jump/climb over. But all in all, we were happy to challenge our legs in this long, nice hike!

anyone who's been there recently, are the puddles an issue driving up to the campground?

The snow is gone now (3/21/20). There are ac few places that you have to climb over logs, but not bad. One creek crossing.

I’m in awe, I hiked trail today for Saint Patrick’s Day 2020. Was not expecting the amount of snow my son and I encountered but would not have changed a thing. The trail was white and beautiful. Use caution when driving up you will hit large ruts in the road approximately 1 mile from South Fork Camp ground. Small cars not advised. As for the trail the first creek crossing was absolutely no problem . However you will find approximately three down trees across the trail. I would still consider this trail as moderate. Also loved the drive up to Three Rivers Ca. I have always loved the quaint atmosphere of the small mountain town. John Harris and Payton Harris Hanford Ca

We hiked this trail yesterday during light snow flurries. It follows along the river offering numerous places to stop and enjoy the views. The trail had some snow packed areas and a couple water crossings. The waterfall did not disappoint!

Nice trail and great walking conditions

Hiked this trail with my whole family and everyone enjoyed it. Liked how the trail parallels the river and gives you the big payoff at the end (the falls). Trail had some packed snow and a few muddy areas but nothing to worry about. Beautiful hike in the National Park.

Trail was in great shape. Hiked it with my wife today (3/11/20). The hike up to the falls is what makes this a moderate. Some steep areas with an overall gradual incline the entire way up. When you get there, definitely go explore; lots of great rocks to climb around on. Multiple fantastic angles of the falls depending on how far your willing to go. Good hike overall. Public parking is across the street in a cul de sac area that’s all dirt/loose gravel by two bathrooms/outhouses.

I enjoy this hike every time, this last time I came alone and it was breathtaking! I was able to make the trek up in 1.5 hours and the hike down, i ran into a momma bear and her cub. I waited 40 minutes, started to sing and shout, and was on my way.

Great hike following a lovely flowering river. Variety of terrain, including rocks, some snow/ice, dirt, and some cute man made bridges. Beautiful waterfall at the end!

Easy stroll through the forest to see some of the best sequoia's in the park. Paved most of the way, hardly any snow on the ground but a few spots where the pavement is iced over. Once you get away from the Sherman Tree, hardly anyone on the trail which was nice because it felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. Recommend going clockwise.

it's worth the trek to end. we had a little bit of hail on the way back but it was a great accomplishment to complete. few trees on the path to climb over.
