THING TO DO

Explore Tokopah Falls

Green foliage grows in a granite canyon with a waterfall flowing in the center of the image.
Tokopah Falls descends 1,200 feet (365.8 meters) down granite cliffs to reach the Marble Fork.

Topokah Falls Trail is a short trail leading to a cascading waterfall. As the trail gently climbs, it follows the Marble Fork of the Kaweah River below magnificent granite cliffs. Once by the falls, keep an eye out for yellow-bellied marmots sunbathing on the rocks.

The trail begins in the Lodgepole Campground. Continue past the entrance kiosk to the bridge just past the overflow parking lot. Spring and early summer are the most scenic seasons for this trail, as wildflowers bloom and snow melt sends water cascading down the falls.

In summer, take the free Sequoia Shuttle to the Topokah Falls trailhead! The Green Route (Giant Forest) and Purple Route (Lodgepole/Wuksachi/Dorst Campground) stop here. At the Lodgepole stop, walk toward the log bridge. The trailhead is just beyond the bridge.
