This is a moderate hike along the Pacific Crest Trail out to a series of waterfalls at Kitchen creek. The trailhead is just off the highway and easy to find. The terrain and trail are easy to navigate although there are some steep parts near the water which you can choose to avoid. There is ample space to lounge by the water so I would suggest you plan on hanging out for a bit before heading back!

A great place to stop for lunch while your hiking the PCT. The descent is steep, watch your step.

Pretty nice n easy trail until you get to the last leg downhill scramble to the creek. The water was flowing nicely thanks to the recent showers. Loved the clear, well maintained path. Made for a great trail run back to the car.
