Family Friendly This well-paved, well-maintained trail is perfect for the whole family. As always, keep an eye out for safety, especially at the bottom of the waterfalls where there are large boulders.

Description

The Topokah Falls Trailhead begins inside Lodgepole Campground. Inside the campground, follow the signs for the trailhead. The trail itself is well-worn and well-maintained. The trail is approximately 1.9 miles one-way, from trailhead to the waterfalls, with a constant gradual incline towards the destination. The trail follows a river within a forest and eventually goes through a rocky area with huge boulders. Once you get to this rocky area, you'll know that you are close to the waterfalls. Once you get to the end of the trail, relax and enjoy the views of the waterfall before heading back downhill towards the trailhead.

Bug repellent is a must, along with sunscreen and water.
