Description

While the vast majority of the hiking destinations in the Lakes Basin are, well, lakes, Frazier Falls is a popular sight that rightfully attracts crowds of tourists. "The falls cascade down nearly 250 feet, and it is easily viewed from a platform that looks over the waterfall and the Frazier Creek Gorge downstream,” according to Aron Bosworth on OutdoorProject.com.

The viewing platform above the falls can quickly be reached via this one-mile round-trip hike on a paved path. This easy hike makes for a great outing for the entire family, and can easily be appended onto a much more ambitious day in the Lakes Basin.

Frazier Falls is fed primarily by snowmelt, so the falls dries up almost completely by late summer. For a roaring waterfall experience, plan your visit for the spring or early summer.
