Waterfalls are basically dried out by October, but just a viewpoint so if you're passing might as well stop by!

It’s not a trail. The water falls are next to the parking. It’s still nice :)

This waterfall was along the road so I wouldn’t call it a trail. But if you are in the area, I recommend stopping. It was a beautiful waterfall!

This isn’t a hike as you can see the fall from the parking area. That being said, it’s very beautiful and great place for a picnic. PLEASE pick up your trash. The Park provided a portable restroom.

This was an amazing view!! Quite a different view of Sequoia and such an appreciation of Kings Canyon. This little trail up to Grizzley falls is rocky, but kid- friendly. Went in the summer and it's a perfect spot to get freshened up!!

More of a jaunt than an actual hike but still a beautiful scenic area. I checked this out a year ago with 2 of my kids on a camping trip and we were glad take the stop!

Not really a hike, since the waterfall is practically on the side of the road. It was our favorite waterfall that we saw in the valley though (vs Mist Falls & Roaring River Falls).

So happy I went out of my way and stopped here. The falls were so full and powerful!! It was neat you can have your lunch comfortably near the falls. It takes barely any energy to get to the falls from the parking lot. The views through the canyon too were an extra bonus to see along with the falls.

Biggest waterfall I've ever seen. Even if your 60 feet away from it, the water from its powerful falls will will spray on you and is super refreshing, and the sunlight reflecting off of the wet rocks and water makes it perfect for portraits. There is a constant amount of people there though, but I didn't feel like it impacted the experience though.

Grizzly Is waterfall for people who have little interest in hiking or a of interest in waterfalls, since the fall is only 50 yards from where you park your car, the waterfall is loud and powerful, dropping 80 feet over a 35 - foot-wide granite ledge. The first time you see it, you may have a sense of déja vu, because photos of this fall frequently appear on park brochure and local travel magazine. It’s that pretty.

Very nice view. It’s just off the road, so there’s no trail to hike. Be prepared to get wet, the water spray is heavy.

Park in small lot for Grizzly Falls. This is an easy hike which you can make as difficult as you want by going uphill from Falls, not sure what is up there. There was no wind so it was going to get hot there in afternoon. This is a great hike to start out your day to see some falls, or after a long hike to stretch out before the ride out of the canyon. Virtual Treadmill video of this hike can be seen on my YouTube Channel, copy and paste link below to watch it. Thanks. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFO02nxPdM4-CabegFIPlow?view_as=subscriber

Great waterfall - not really a hike though and tons of touristas. Said better - if 100ft walk is your definition of a hike, you need to get out more!

Not much of a hike, or even a walk to be quite honest, but the waterfalls are pretty and definitely worth stopping for if you happen to be driving by.
