    A ranger friend sent an email alert that "Carlon Falls is spectacular," and it truly is. This is a fairly easy hike with a couple of short, steep sections that most folks can manage. It's worth it to walk to the upper falls. This is a cataract that tumbles in rapids and drops. After our wet winter of 2018/19, there were wildflower in late June, still. A shady, lovely walk along the Tuolumne River. About 4.72 miles RT from the Carlon Day Use area (with picnic tables & pit toilets).
