Take a hike to Rainbow Falls!

Plan a hike this year to an amazing waterfall that gets its name from the rainbows produced by mist from this 80-foot high waterfall. On sunny afternoons, this amazing sight can be seen! Don’t you want to see it?

3498c18c5ef091c0dcbf624b4d4d78c4This hike is considered moderate difficulty. The terrain, duration and climb can be difficult for some. Rainbow Falls Trail gains about 1,500 feet in elevation as you climb upward. It’s 5.4 miles round-trip and the Rainbow Falls Trail continues for approximately 4 miles beyond the falls to the summit of Mount Le Conte. Please plan accordingly and factor in the amount of daylight you will have! This is NOT a hike to start later in the afternoon.



Useful Information:821ee2fa-5c55-447c-b4c3-d12d549e43a6.Large

  • It takes about 3-5 hours to hike to the waterfall and back
  • Carry drinking water with you.
  • Wear sturdy shoes.
  • Don’t hike in flip flops.
  • Pets and bicycles are prohibited on the trail.
  • Do not climb on rocks around the waterfall.
