Hiking

I really enjoyed this trail but it was very crowded. The Instagramers were out in full force. I came across a baby rattle snake on the trail so I definitely wouldn’t recommend sandals like I saw quite a few people wearing. Parking is pretty awful here.. it’s on a gravel road and you just park on one side and pray no one is coming the other direction while you are driving down. GO EARLY! I saw a couple coming up with a baby stroller when I was leaving and I’m not really sure what they were thinking... this trail is not suitable for strollers or wheelchairs.

Just some added on the seventh my first time and I am almost 65 years old. I started at 1:37 in the morning and finished at 8:50 at night so just over 19 hours which I know is slow compared to all the really youngsters out there. I only mention it for older people or short people or anyone who thinks they have a very steady but slower pace. There are some huge rocks in the trail from the earthquake we just named them earthquake rocks. The very last of the beautiful water that is clear and from the spring as a switch back 23. There’s no need to carry water until the last part of the day from switch back 23 to the Summit and back down that part of the hike as there are many water crossings involved in the initial 6 miles of the trail. That’s one nice thing at least which is you don’t have to carry all that weight until you get to switch back 23 when you do need to carry approximately 3 L to get yourself up and back from the summit. The weather this week has been absolutely gorgeous and this is a very heavily trafficked trail so you will not be alone. You do not need micro spikes there’s only two small areas of snow but enough hikers have packed foot prints in the snow that you just carefully step in the prince and you’ll be fine. Not try this hike unless you are in shape to do so however 22 1/2 miles up and down almost 6200 feet is quite grueling.

Backpacking

We started at Cloudburst Summit and hiked part of the PCT down to Cooper Canyon Trail Camp. Super easy on the way in since it’s a straight decent into the canyon. Almost too easy, so we made our way further in after setting up camp. The falls is rammed with people, and with covid, we opted to keep going down the trail until we saw a path leading off-trail to the creek. So many monarchs in late June. Very peaceful times just downstream if you look for it.

Beautiful trail the entire way! I was a little confused by the AllTrails recorded distance - I see 6+ miles at first, then 8+ miles when reading the description. We parked at Happy isle Rd and clocked 10+ miles total on this trail. Worth it though!!! Pack sunscreen - sandy and a little slippery on the way down the John Muir trail.

Trail Closed due to Covid. You can see the falls from the scenic viewpoint though

Only completed part of the hike due to timing constraints. Great trail, but rocky exposed parts so go early before things heat up. Tactical note: within the first mile or so after a steep incline, you’ll reach a small lake (pond?) and the trail forks. Keep right to stay on the trail, it goes between a big boulder and a tree that hugs the water and looks like a dead end (but it’s not). Plus to add to confusion, the left of the fork has a sign that says “trail” but it’ll just loop you back down to the trailhead.

I would consider this trail hard, not much for the incline - the only fatigue comes from being a lot in the sun - but because the last part of the trail is a bit scary. The trail is consistently very narrow, with currently some patches of overgrown plants; but the last part has stretches of insanely narrow, rocky path, with exposure on one side. Not the greatest if you're very scared of heights. Even so, the waterfalls were absolutely worthy and stunning! It took me a couple of hours to go up from the camping ground, and then I spent several hours there. The water is very cold and delicious. there are other waterfalls up to explore. It is a bit tricky to go down in the water from the side of the trail: especially hard to come back up. There's a branch that can be used to help you climb up. We all scrambled on that side, but later I saw a group of people that knew the area crossing by the waterfall instead, which seemed much easier in spite of the wet rocks. Maybe I would try that if you wanna go in the water! I saw people wearing trainers, but I was very grateful I wore good hiking boots, especially close to the waterfall, with the slippery dirt and rocks. I wouldn't bring small children, but that's just me. All in all stunning, and a fun change of scenery after a few days higher up in the woods.

Great family hike. Easy but not boring. The kids really enjoyed playing in the pools in the stream! We ran into ~10 groups over 2 hours so not super crowded on a weekday. About 50% of people are masked and good about keeping their distance.

Trail is downhill on the way to the waterfall and all uphill back. The views are beautiful, just make sure you watch your step! In order to get to the waterfall, you'll get to a sign that marks the fork between Copper Canyon Falls and Burkhart Trail. Make sure you follow the sign to Burkhart Trail (keep right). After that, keep walking for 15 minutes and look to the left! When you see a broken tree (there are alot but it makes sense once on the trail), follow a steep path on your left. Luckily there were people sitting near the water when me and my boyfriend hiked it so we were able to find the waterfall easy! All in all, this was a BEAUTIFUL trail and I'll definitely be hiking it again!

Nice hike to the lower falls. I did see a bear on the path, I was 20 feet away from it.

My two buddies and I were looking forward to trying an unfamiliar trail in our neighborhood. We parked just outside of Eden Center then walked up a hill, then back down since it took us away from the creek. The creek and mine remnants were cool but the “surprise” incline on Whiptail Trail was difficult (having done two big hikes, including Potato Chip, so far this week). My legs felt it, and let’s just say I whined and bitched a ton up the mountain! It was worth it as the views were awesome! The descent was steep, but it’s a cool trail overall. All the poop and scat though took away some of its appeal, as did my childish ranting!

Quite overgrown. Lost the trail 2 times, the second time taking around 45 minutes to find my way back. Be attentive and aware at all times, some parts of the trail are almost flush with the side of the mountain so trekking poles are very important! That being said, the cave was super cool and I have no regrets! Definitely don't go alone

Awesome trail! Not too bad on the way down with a gorgeous view. The waterfall was incredible and the trail and water were very clean. Nothing scary in the water, just small fish. A bit steep on the way back up but we loved it! Bring lots of water, sunscreen and a hat. And if you are bringing a dog on a sunny day maybe put some shoes on him/her and lots of water.

Loved this trail. The waterfall itself is so gorgeous. On the way back there is another way where you can cut off almost a mile, we didn’t know that and were hiking back up through rocky trail, but anyways it was a good workout. Definitely go to this hike while in Lassen Park

It was an easy-moderate hike. You're going to have to balance on a log to get to the rest of the trail. I went 2 weeks ago and it was PACKED. If you're concerned about social distancing go earlier in the morning. Once it's 9-10AM everyone and their mother is there. It might not be as packed on a weekday though. There was like 2 points where there was some incline. Nothing awful, but if you have bad knees I wouldn't recommend the Red trail. Lots of cute dogs on the trail. Friendly people. This is a good hike for early mornings or when there isn't as much sunlight beaming down. The creek is COLD, but so refreshing after the trek.

The trail was great going down and there are several ways you can take. The trail is very long so do take water. Very rocky trail. The hardest part of the trail is going back up it is intense.

We were driving to absolutely different waterfalls in that area and accidentally met some local man who suggested to visit this one. We didn’t have enough time before sunset, so we visited only the middle waterfall and it was absolutely breathtaking. Definitely one of the best places in California and is a must! So gorgeous!

I give this trail 3 stars, but my husband gives it 5 stars so we split the difference. Parts of the trail are pretty overgrown, and there is a significant amount of poison oak. It’s relatively easy to avoid you just have to constantly be on the look out. The creek at the end is pretty worth the overgrown blackberry bushes and the poison oak though. Take a picnic and plan on hoping in the water because it is a sweet little swimming spot.
