Not really a trail. right off the road but amazing waterfall!

Definitely more snow then anticipated but it made this short hike more of a fun adventure. The top was beautiful.

One of the best views for such a short hike.

Quick and easy hike. Perfect short and simple trail to get an amazing view of the sunrise if you get up there early enough!

Easy walk through beautiful grove of trees. Popular hike in the park.

Awesome easy flat hike in King’s Canyon. Flat. Loved the meadow board walk and rock sections.

The only good views are at the very beginning but the rest of the hike was kind of "meh". A bonus though is we see no other people on the hike.

Beautiful trail with a paved section leading up to an awesome overview of the mountains. The Trail then continues as a dirt trail but is well maintained

Nice hike. Views of rock falls, stream and forest. Feels remote even though there's a road very nearby.

Had the whole hike to myself. Stunning views.

Nice little hike. Super busy but for a quick look at the great trees it is well worth it.

A short and pleasant stroll around a peaceful meadow that offers beautiful, scenic views outside and within! My DH enjoyed sighting wildlife with his binoculars while I enjoyed meandering along with my camera taking in the sights. If only I lived here to do this on a weekly basis! :-D Since this is on the end of the road, my recommendation would be to do this first since you will have to backtrack anyway. Who knows? You may see more wildlife earlier in the day!

A great relatively flat-leveled trail. A little short but, still has a great view and river access! Also, access to additional THs nearby! Definitely recommend.

Decent amount of parking available and restroom access before TH.

It's beautiful! It's a short little hike with little to no elevation change and great for families. You are plopped right down in the middle of a meadow with these huge granite mountains surrounding you. When we were there (late August), the bugs were unbearable. It's worth noting because without spray and long sleeved light weight hiking clothes that we wore we won't have been able to do the hike.

The Roaring River Falls is a short easy walk, well worth it.

So close off the road. Easy to find and beautiful falls!! Loved that there were picnic tables too!

nice little hike for my aging parents. waterfall and river in full effect.

Scenic walk with lots of wonderful things to see. The path is paved all the way up to General Grant from the parking lot.

Great trail on a beautiful ridge. A couple awesome vistas. About 20% shade.

Worth it to relax at the end with a beautiful view in front of you

Easy paved trail to beautiful and powerful waterfall. Lots of rock to sit on and enjoy the falls

Nice views but heavy smoke from fires reduced visibility a lot

Nice paved loop. Would have liked to hiked additional trails. It it was getting late

Beautiful Waterfall just off the highway. Easy walk to the falls

With the exception of a portion of the trail that goes through granite boulders it's a very smooth and easy trail. The meadow is beautiful and the view of the mountains are amazing. You cross the river on a bridge and the river adds to the beauty of the walk

If you're pressed for time or don't want to do much hiking, start at the falls parking lot and walk a couple minutes in and back. Go to the meadow, do the loop and then walk along the river towards the falls for a bit. Those are the most interesting sections in my opinion. We hiked the full thing.

Easy trail as an intro to SEKI from the Fresno side. Trail is paved. Handful of loops to explore for a short, easy walk.

great trail through a boulder field and meadow... what i would consider a great beginner trail running experience if i was a runner... just enough of a workout after some higher elevation hikes... wild berries were starting to produce...

Gen. Grant is right where i left him over 15 years ago... just bigger... what a lovely grove

Quick, easy, and beautiful trail. Maybe 1/2 a mile total, out and back trail with, you guessed it, a panoramic view at the top! Paved trail, easy for young kids!
