Great Trail! Lots of ferns and shaded areas. The bridge is still down passed Bailey’s Bridge. Bring a lot of bug spray and I highly suggest mosquito nets, they are BAD!

Nice easy hike that’s relatively flat the entire way. The highlight of this trail is Bailey’s Bridge. Lots of sandy river bed areas to enjoy a break and a swim. We started at the trailhead by the Road’s End ranger station and went up to Mist Falls. After descending from Mist Falls, we decided to return by taking the other half of the loop on the south side of the river. Lots of gnats and mosquitoes though.

Washed out edge, but took the mist trail up to add more to the hike.

If you do clockwise, after baily bridge the trail were washed out by the river and it's impossible to walk over the river, as of June 11,2017. I actually go to mist falls trail and that was a very nice one too!

One of the greatest hikes you can do in Kings Canyon. Experience the fresh cool air, while strolling along the river. Little jumps over logs to keep your trailhead exciting. So many encounters with small water streams and wildflowers. I came across a deer eating them, and it was a grand sight to see. There is lot of shades as you go deeper into the woods. So many different plants and trees to see. The trail is mostly flat, so it was pretty easy. Just pack lots of water and bug spray if you hate mosquitos. :P

Good length, mostly flat. Very nice access to streams and creeks. Greenery made me feel like I was in Jurassic Park. Actual dirt trail feels like you're walking in sand which can be tiring. Other than that it was enjoyable.

Gorgeous hike. Saw quite a few deer very close up on the trail. This trail can combined with Bubb's Creek trail to make a longer more interesting hike. We jumped over some creeks and crossed a few bridges. There was lots of shade.
