Description

Kings Creek Falls is where Kings Creek plunges 40-50 feet over a cliff into a small pool below. There are two large viewing platforms just past the falls where one can see the falls in their entirety.

At the bottom of the falls, Kings Creek continues downstream in a rocky canyon.

Half-Day Run: From a well marked trailhead along the park road, Kings Creek Falls is visited by hiking 1.4 miles on Kings Creek Trail.
