Carlon Falls by Kimberly Smiley (468) 8 months ago 8 Completed 2 Reviews Nice hike & one of the few trails opened in the area due to the Rim Fire. Carlon Falls by Maria Martinez (57) 8 months ago 2 Completed 1 Reviews Had a great time! The trail is fairly easy to hike Carlon Falls by Rochelle Hewitt (57) 8 months ago 1 Completed 1 Reviews I hiked this trail over the 4th of July weekend. It was one of the few that are open this year, after the devestation caused by the rim fire. the trail is lined by beautiful trees (or what's left of them) and a small river runs along side. at one point we stopped and relaxed on a fallen tree that lay across the river. It was about 95º but felt much cooler in the shade. The trail is fairly easy (I'll take my 3 yr old next time) although the last half mile gets somewhat steep Preston Falls by Sara Boren (239) over 1 year ago 7 Completed 6 Reviews Beautiful trail!! Deffinately check it out :) Jack Main Canyon and Tilden Lake by John Medose (108) over 2 years ago 2 Completed 2 Reviews Awesome awesome awesome one of my favorite hikes all time !!!!!! Preston Falls by Wendy Hesse (1112) over 2 years ago 30 Completed 18 Reviews Preston Falls is a smallish falls in the Tuolumne River just outside Hetch Hetchy. The hike is moderate with undulating hills and goes along the river, so there's always a water presence. There's a shady, level area perfect for a picnic when you reach the falls. Dangle your feet and cool off then head back. A very pleasant hike accessible between Groveland and the Highway 120 entrance to Yosemite National Park Carlon Falls by Rebekah Scott (228) over 3 years ago 4 Completed 1 Reviews The trailhead is located just past the Carlon picnic area sign, over the bridge. You can park on either side of Evergreen Road at the day use areas. We located the parking area easily. There was a map at the information board, the map says trailhead closed from 8/1/11 till 1/1/2012. So bummed. There is construction equipment blocking the trailhead. Major bummer. I look forward to trying this again next year. Poopenaut Valley by Jessica almost 7 years ago Completed Reviews I hiked this valley 4 days ago and since im not in very good shape is was hard. on the way down its very steep and hard on the legs, there are a few nice spots to look at but your going so fast down the hill you dont get to enjoy it that much. My friends and i camped at the bottom by the stream and that was nice, not too many people there so it gives you privacy. the next day when we hiked back up it was very hard, very steep, it took me and a friend 1 hr and 45 min but it only took our other friends 1 hr and 10 min, so i guess it depends who you are. I might not do it again but i would tell someone else about it if there looking to work out there legs for sure.
