Waterfall · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Tokopah Falls, also known as Tokopah Valley Falls, is a 1,200-foot (370 m) cascading waterfall in Sequoia National Park, California. The falls are formed as the Marble Fork of the Kaweah River slides down a huge granite headwall of the glacial Tokopah Valley. Although the falls flow powerfully during the snow melt of late spring and early summer, it is usually a trickle by autumn, occasionally drying up completely during poor snow years.

The falls are accessible by a fairly flat 4.1-mile (6.6 km) roundtrip hike from Highway 198.

  • The hike to the falls is easy (very slight uphill) and well marked. Fantastic river and mountain views on the way, and the falls are beautiful.  more »
  • Had a great time though was farther than we realized. The path was well marked and beautiful views of the river along the way  more »
  • I call this trail is (easy +) because In a short time hiking in and out but you have everything a little of elevation change, rocky, wet ground, muddy, sand rocks, River and forest, The trail is almost as awesome as the falls, In a little more than a mile and a half, you get incredible views of the Watchtower, Your perspective on the the watchtower changes with every few steps you take, and it’s breathtaking from every angle. The final quarter- mile of the path is fun which traverses rocky slops, in one section you must duck your head as you walk under a ledge, you can walk right to the edge of the falls, choose a rock to sit on and enjoy the pretty of the Mother Nature Will come back again when I’m around there
  • Super easy hike, good for small kids.
