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.

Loooved this sweet trail!!! It was absolutely perfect for our three boys! Waterfalls, rock climbing, butterflies and a trail that is difficult to lose!

Short hike with the river flowing right next to the trail until you hit the falls. The falls were also flowing at the most intense rate I have ever seen and it was amazing being able to see this rare sight.

New to hiking and have to say I absolutely love this trail. Great views, wonderful waterfalls, and not a lot of traffic. Will be returning here soon.

Took the kids and had a great time. The trail gets a little treacherous toward the end by the falls. Kids loved clamoring over the rocks. Lots of fuzzy caterpillars. Beautiful. Peaceful.
