Like Yosemite Valley, Tokopah Valley was shaped by a glacier. This trail leads you under the canopy of pines and firs as you pass an occasional meadow and creek-crossings with a rewarding waterfall at the end.

I loved this hike so much! When we went in May, there was still snow on the ground but the weather was amazing. It follows the water all the way to the falls. I loved it even more because I got engaged on this hike!

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!

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.

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!

Amazing hike with gorgeous waterfall at the top! its snowy pretty much whole way with little dried land in patches. Not very difficult if you stay on trail. lot of people seen on the trail and kids too. it gets little slippery on the steep parts. All worth it for the views at the end. One of the best Trail!

Great hike with beautiful views. A little slippery on the steeper spots. Yaktrax or similar would be helpful but not necessary.. The waterfall at the end is gorgeous.

Easily found the start of the trail past the Lodgepole Campground across the bridge that crosses the Marble Fork of the Kaweah River. Wasn’t sure if we’d need snowshoes and/or poles but the snow was nicely packed and not too icy so neither were necessary. Trail was absolutely magical, had gorgeous views of the river and the Watchtower throughout the hike.

This hike is an easy hike in the summer but it is definitely more of a challenging hike in the snow due to snow bridges and rout finding

Really fun, fairly easy hike. The trail and surrounding area is completely covered in snow but if you stay on the packed parts it’s totally doable with regular hiking shoes. The waterfall is well worth seeing and the pool is frozen over so you can walk over it.

A lovely trail, but very hard to follow in deep snow. We turned around a little after halfway because we just couldn’t figure out where the trail was. Great fun for the family. Snowshoes can be rented at the lodge pole market!

I did this hike 3 times this year. Once in the spring (April), once in early summer (June), and once recently in November. It is one of my favorite hikes in Sequoia. Not very difficult at all. A beautiful forest stroll next to a creek with an epic payoff at the end. It was best for me in June after the snow had melted, the wildflowers were in bloom, and the waterfall was roaring.

Just did hiking today. Beautiful place it’s cooler and shaded Rocky Mountain at the end, creek is low in water but it’s not big deal... overall total ... love the place
