A wonderful trail ... but be aware that the trailhead is nearly 13 miles south of the Giant Forest Museum on one of the country's twistiest roads. In the early afternoon, the temperature was 95 degrees on the trail (although much of it is shaded in the a.m.) and 65 degrees at the falls. The falls are spectacular and, in the latter part of the hike, so are the views of the Kaweah River. At this time of year, wildflowers in whites, reds, pinks, lavenders, oranges, blues and yellows. On our Sunday hike, we encountered only five people in four hours of hiking (not including a small contingent who were at the falls).
