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.For Tokopah Falls and beyond, use our Three Rivers trip builder website to get the most from your Three Rivers vacation.
The falls are accessible by a fairly flat 4.1-mile (6.6 km) roundtrip hike from Highway 198.

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.
