Located within the Mokelumne Wilderness Area, the Grover's Falls trail is a short hike that becuase it is wide and not steep could suit the needs of a family with young children. The wooded trail is well used but can sometimes be confusing due to the many parallel that sit adjacent to the main trail.

The trail follows the stream from the campground so there is no concern about losing your way if you get off the most used portion. Also, trees provide shade and the river is always nearby. There are several small waterfalls along the way.

Please Remember:

* Always carry drinking water.
* Hike in single file to keep trails narrow and wild.
* Prevent erosion, follow the trail and do NOT cut switchbacks.
* Keep trails clean, pack out ALL paper and trash.
* Protect plants and wildlife.


Directions: From Markleeville, Head west along Hot Spring's Road towards Grover's Hot Springs State Park. In about 3 miles look to your right for a sign which reads "Charity Valley". Parking is available here, or if you wish to shorten the hiking distance enter Grover's Hot Springs State Park (there is a day use fee) and follow the entrance road until it dead ends at an overflow parking area. This trailhead also leads to the longer and steeper Burnside Lake Trail and to Charity Valley.Driving time from Carson City is under an hour.
