East Snow Mountain Falls is a gargantuan cascade dropping a whopping 2200 ft. off the east side of Snow Mountain. This makes East Snow Mountain Falls the second highest known waterfall in California, second only to Yosemite Falls. This is fairly major news because up until now, this huge waterfall in the North Fork American River canyon had not previously been documented, although it can be seen fairly easily at the end of a long day hike. East Snow Mountain Falls is a seasonal waterfall, meaning that after all the snow has melted from Snow Mountain, it will be dry. However, the drainage is large enough that the waterfall will likely be flowing into well into August in most years (note: Yosemite Falls is also a seasonal waterfall).
