Description

Kings Creek Cascades is a massive whitewater cascade that rushes steeply down the rock for almost a quarter mile, dropping over 200 feet as it goes.

Kings Creek Cascades Foot Trail is the way to see Kings Creek Cascades. This narrow, steep stair-step trail in the rock, runs along the entire length of the cascades, right next to them.

Half-Day Run: From a well marked trailhead along the park road, Kings Creek Cascades is visited by hiking the 2.5 mile Kings Creek Falls Out and Back route.
