Carlon Falls Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Follow a peaceful section of South Fork Tuolumne River to the jumble of river rocks and Carlon Falls. In the wake of the 2013 Rim Fire, the hike to Carlon Falls has become a study in
contrasts. Along the South Fork Tuolumne River a verdant riparian habitat thrives, with reeds, willow, alder, and primordial clusters of Indian rhubarb, with its giant umbrella-like leaves, cluttering the banks.

But just a few hundred yards uphill to the east, the thick evergreen forest is scarred by the fire, the understory burned clear and the trunks scorched. The riverside is inviting and vibrant, the forest side is creaky and vaguely unnerving, and the juxtaposition makes the walk to the falls all the more
invigorating."
