A very short, shady walk to a powerful waterfall rushing through a granite chute. Paved, relatively accessible.

Not really a hike, more of a quick walk up a paved trail. Pretty waterfall and worth the stop and 5 minute walk.

Pretty much a short, paved trail up to the falls. Pretty waterfall, but not really a hike. We actually hiked from Zumwalt Meadow once during the day, and the actual trail at sunset later that day.

Getting to the falls is a breeze. After leaving your car in the Roaring River Falls parking lot, just follow the trail though the forest and you arrive in about 5 minutes Roaring River Falls cute and clever name

A simple and easy walk along the asphalt path along the river to a small waterfall cascade. Not very impressed, but not to pass by, too.

Short paved trail. Definitely roaring in late May.

Hard to get more bang for your ten minute hike than this one! Falls were torrential due to snow and rain. Don’t miss this one if in this area! Light traffic today too!

This river literally was roaring in early May. Loved it.

Short walk from the parking lot, paved trail with slight elevation gain. Nice looking fall, you can scramble down the rocks to get to the waters edge. There were some bugs flying around depending on where you were, but not bad.

A short walk to a pretty waterfall. Nothing to go out of your way for but worth stopping if you happen to be driving by. I'm sure we would have been more impressed if not for the fact that we had just finished the stunning Rae Lakes hike, which made everything else pale in comparison.

we did this with a small modification, going from Zumwalt Meadows trailhead to roaring river falls. luckily we had someone that was willing to drive the car back to the Roaring River Falls Trail head and meet us at the falls. from RRF trail head the trail is paved and a gentle incline, super easy. the longer walk (1.8 mi) from Zumwalt Meadows at points we had to stop to make sure we were still on the trail. this was still an easy hike. Stroll along the Kings River, amazing views of the canyon walls. we were lucky enough to see a bear along the lightly trafficed trail. I would do this again, especially in the spring when the river and falls are really Roaring.

Would probably just be a quick stop for most, but is definitely worth it. A couple years back a group of me and my friends decided to hike to the back of the falls. There's no trail, we just followed the river back, but there's a natural bridge back there and has a lot of beautiful cascades and falls! Do not attempt unless you are good at climbing/swimming/navigating!!

This was pretty neat, and easy for a fat guy like me to walk it.
