About 12 miles past the King Canyon Nat'l Park Visitor Center on Hwy 180, park at the trailhead on the left side of the road. The downhill trail immediately switches to the right and passes underneath a beautiful oak canopy. The oaks don't last as the trail breaks into the open and the next mile is a series of long meandering switchbacks that ultimately drops to The Kings River. Vistas include the merge of the South and Middle forks of the Kings. We did the hike in early spring and the water volumes were spectacular. We stopped short of going to the base of the canyon. Our time was limited since we did the hike late in the day after the long drive in from Los Angeles. However, there was no shortage of a payoff--the falls from Tenmile Creek were amazing. We did the hike in late April, so snow melt was in full effect. Beware of rattlesnakes (no encounter for us), and poison oak (lots of it). Hike, in and out, took about 3 hours.
