Route Description for Stevenson Falls Trail
This adventure is a must add to your hiking bucket list. Indulge yourself in some of the best scenes that the Sierra National Forest has to offer along this route. Paved most of the way, this trail is ideal for novice hikers and children alike! Note that while the exposed terrain offers great views, it also warrants extreme conditions—so check the forecast and prepare accordingly.
From the trailhead, the Stevenson Falls Trail tracks east past the gate, and along the Million Dollar Road. This path will soon divert northwest along a mountainside of Flume Peak. As you climb, the path will reward you with wonderful views of the San Joaquin Valley below. Notice Lion Point looming in the northwest as you hike the paved path past a sealed tunnel. Eventually, you will reach Stevenson Falls.
In the spring, the cascades will surge over the granite cliffside. Revel in the sights, and when you are ready, retrace your footing along the path back to the trailhead.
