Kings River Falls is an scenic hike along the banks of the Kings River that ends at the falls. Best visited mid autumn through mid spring for a more spectacular view of the falls. The trail is well used making it easy to follow. Their are traces of of an old rock stone fence along the way. The falls can be spectacular. The river below the falls is a great swimming hole, but be careful, no lifeguard.

Pretty easy hike. There are plenty of places to park. The waterfall at the end was not really flowing due to lack of rain. But it was still an excellent hike, will go back in the spring. Unfortunately there was also trash.

You are right by the water so most of the hike is beautiful! Great swimming hole awaits you at the end. We packed our lunch and ate sitting on a big Rock that overlooks the falls. Gorgeous!!!

This was our second visit and we had a very different experience this time! Last year went on a Sunday and there was a huge crowd of college students, loud music, trash everywhere, lewd behavior...so we played upstream instead and didn't even go to the falls. We decided to visit on a weekday this time. The people were great, the crowd was small, no litter, and the fall was running great!

This is a great little trail that I find myself on a couple times each year and still look forward to each trip. It is a very easy trail for little ones also with a nice place to jump in and cool off at the end.

Great family hike! Definitely wear a swimming suit, the pool at the falls is a fun swimming hole. The terrain is easy, pretty flat and an easy trail to follow. You do have to go in on a dirt road for 5 miles or so, but it is well packed and our van did fine on it. Overall a beautiful place to hike!!

The trail and the falls were beautiful, but boy did we go on the wrong day..total college party. It wouldn't have been so bad except we had our two little boys with us and by what we saw going on, we couldn't even go to the falls which was a real bummer because we drove two hours to get there. We did make the best of it though and played in the river and swimming hole a bit upstream from the falls. I can't wait to go back again...maybe on a weekday and perhaps after a heavy rain as the falls were a bit dry (although we expected that) I'll give this 5 stars when we can actually enjoy the falls.

I have been here a few times with the family, a great place to take the dog swimming and let the kids jump off the falls into the water below.

Great trail! It took my family around 40 minutes to complete but that was with twin three year olds as our trail guides. Water felt great and was beautiful!

Easy hike in and out....really enjoyed it. There was lots of little falls on the way to the "big one". The weather was kinda cruddy the day we went which meant we had the whole place to ourselves. Took a lunch and just enjoyed the area. This is a must do if you are ever in the Boston area!!!

Beautiful hike. Loved the rock formations at pedestal rocks. Just in awe of it all.
