We could not make it all the way. We saw cattle that blocked our way and we could not go through them. There were no people around.

Great easy hike with the kids. The parking area is tiny. There’s additional parking and a vault toilet on the opposite side of the river from the trailhead.

easy at first. moderate as you get closer to the falls. some hills. a little confusing, lots of trails split off to the right and go to the river before the final fall. beautiful and lots of space to hang out.

Took a great family hike ranging from 5-69 it was great! Falls at the end were spectacular and we all had fun swimming.

By far the best hidden secret near Yosemite! Stayed at Hodgdon Meadows Campground this past week and this trail is literally minutes away from the campground. Parked at the trailhead off of Evergreen Road. The hike if fairly easy, my kids (ages 16 and 10) including my 65 year old Dad did this trail. The swimming hole was such a reward at the end of the trail along with the waterfalls. Swam for a while and took it all in! Will definitely be adding this trail to my to do's every time I go to Yosemite now!

Trail itself is okay. Very sandy. What makes it worth the trip is the waterfall at the end.
