I have done this trail a total of 3 times and would highly recommend it. Very easy and the views are stunning. Hiked it in the summer and conditions were perfect. Great day hike!

Beautiful views, moderate to difficult hike during end of March due to hiking in quite a bit of snow. Easy to follow the trail and follow the river and the end view was worth the hike. One way in and one way out!

love this trail...

Did this trail yesterday, 3/27/18. The trail was covered with snow. Not too bad going in but as the day warmed up the snow became soft and slushy. overall great hike

I was looking for a trail during a solo Kings/Sequoia 3 day trip and wanted to look into a nice hike I can spend majority of the day with. I picked Mist Falls over all the other trails because of the end point being a nice waterfall. Growing up near Joshua Tree NPS I anticipated the trail to be fairly barren (meaning not much to look at) until the end of the trail but this trail proved otherwise and not disappoint! The first chunk of the trail has light shade and is fairly flat, then you shift into a denser forest before you get granted with a nice walk along the Kings River. The overflow from the river does feed into the trail, which forces you to maneuver a bit more off trail expected but it was easy to find your way back. Dense forest goes into fairly open canyon stone trail with a bit of elevation gain that increases in intervals. The last mile of the trail does get a bit strenuous if you're not careful with heat and your own pacing. The waterfall, however, does not disappoint and you're treated with a nice view of the canyon.
Round trip took about 5-6 hours including a short picnic at the end of the trail. Waterproof hiking shoes and bug spray are highly recommended!

I LOVE this hike. If you are looking to do a shorter hike with a great payoff this one is the one! We went in the middle of June and there was still snow! The waterfall at the end was amazing and full. There is a nice flat rock right by the waterfall that we had our picnic lunch at. You will get misted by the waterfall but we thought that was very refreshing. There is also a river right next to the trail for most of the way which was beautiful. I loved the sound of the rapids and how clear the water was!

Great hike even in February cool to see the iced over waterfall!!!

This trail is a best kept secret at Kings Canyon National Park!!! First of all, driving back to this trail has more beautiful grand views, than any views in Yosemite or Sequoia National Parks. The first half of the trail has just enough mosquitoes to drive you crazy but its easy to speed through high mosquito zone. The second half of the trail opens up and has some of the best canyon views of a fast flowing river I have ever seen. The views of the falls at the end of the trail make it well worth toughing out the mosquitoes.

Not too difficult but by far, one of my favorite hikes......you better like stairs though! Make sure to pick a warm day to do this trek because it'll add to the overall beauty while keeping you energized to continue.

The kids had a great time. There was still some snow, so the kids enjoyed that. Would definitely do again!

aside from getting eaten alive by bugs, it was a fantastic hike.

fun trail with a good payoff at the end. Great drive up to the trailhead as well.

Fun hike took the family and enjoyed it!

Awesome trail. Killer mosquitos. Stunning views

Short hike. Awesome Canyon! Look forward to seeing the fall during spring run off.

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

Great views and not difficult at all. Not advisable in a Dodge Challenger. Lol

We did this hike about 2 months ago in August though the mosquitos were the worst it was still a very beautiful hike one lake was more like a pond and the other was somewhat small it was still so peaceful and pretty. the hike it’s self was very strenuous and I’d recommend being in shape!! There was a lot of steep parts and with a heavy pack it sure made it a challenge. Late summer was the time to go there were sill many streams and creeks flowing and in the spring it seems like the larger creeks would be hard to cross safely

Great hike for the baby and wife! Carrier friendly and falls were amazing

Easy trail, elevation gain was just perfect for the beginners I that were with me.

Quick and enjoyable out and back with amazing views at the summit. Not too difficult but can be tough if you are not used to altitudes.

I have to give it a 4 due to all the (non-biting) flies on the trail. Otherwise, this is a definite 5-Star trail that is not too difficult, and has constant beautiful scenery.

The Don Cecil is graded incredibly well! It maintains an even climbing incline for its entirety, and allows for consistent pacing all the way up. It's an efficient way to climb out of Kings Canyon proper. Lookout Peak is quite nice (not sure how one could complain about the views aside from a hazy day) , but the spur trail to the peak does get quite scrambly, and could deter a few folks who aren't ready to pull themselves up a steep hill after the 3000+ feet of Don Cecil from the bottom. Had a hard time finding how to get to the meadow, ended up enjoying views of it from the summit road. Saw 2 people total in 7 hrs of hiking.

I found this trail to be hard, only because I'm a couch potato and am not used to carrying 30 pounds, 3000 feet, up 7 miles. Once I got to the top, I realized how worth it, it was.

Beautiful trail. Plenty of uphill to keep your legs warm, and you'll need it! When I reached the lakes yesterday there was 2" of snow on the ground. The clouds rolled in around 4 and made for a surreal experience! By morning skies were clear and the temp was below freezing.

Great hike with great views. Enjoy the climb!

If you like an easy hike next to a creek this is a perfect trail. Almost entire trail shaded by large trees, follows the creeks all the way to the fall. Last hundred yard narrow, rocky. The fall was beautiful.

Parking lot at road's end was pretty crowed for a weekday morning however once I got on the trail it was pretty empty. Lots of bugs on the trail. Pretty flat for the first two miles as it follows along the river in the canyon then makes a turn to head north still following the river and begins to climb. Along with the falls also make sure you stop at the rock outlook and look back towards an amazing view down the canyon.
