The photos of the waterfalls looked amazing. We visited in November. After hiking a little over a mile to view the falls we were so disappointed. We even asked if we were at the correct location. Barely a trickle coming down the mountain. The hike...More

We did this trail this week. It starts from the campground car park at Lodgepole and runs up the side of the river. It's really pretty and at this time of the year we hardly saw anyone else - maybe five other couples the whole...More

The hike to Tokopah falls follows the river and is very pleasant. The start of the hike is in the open, exposed granite but then the trail enters the cool fir forest with meadows and flowers and access to the river. We saw a bear...More

beautiful walk or run along spectacular river, wildflowers along trail (June/July) and wildlife (Marmot, deer, bear). I prefer early hike, but water flows stronger later during snow melt. watch kids near falls.

Some people at it's an easy hike for young kids but I disagree. Although it's an easy hike, it's at an incline the whole at up for 1.7 miles. My 3&6 yr olds would not enjoy that. The way down is easy but I would...More

The trail up there is a great one as there were plenty of climbing and meadows to cross. If you have a slight medical or physical issue, use a talking stick. It will help. At the end of the path, it's all rock climbing/trail. Not...More
