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](https://www.outdoorproject.com/united-states/california/frazier-falls). 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.
