We were in the area and found the trail to the King. It's a 20 min. hike from Burrell's Ford campground. Great hike but after a recent snowfall, the last hundred yards to the falls were icy and quite the challenge. The view at the falls was definitely worth the risk. The water was gushing and the trickle falls to the side were iced over. Spectacular to say the least.

Beautiful waterfall! There are two trails from parking. The trail is behind the sign post of Sumter Forest near Burrells Ford Road. It would take about .7 mile. Another trail is past the gate on the parking and go down the gravel road until you see the campground on right. Stay LEFT on the road and before you see the wood bridge, you will see the sign says King Creek Falls arrow/trail on the left side. Go there and it would take about .9 mile.

If you want to visit Spoonauger Falls, do NOT park on this parking! It would take 1.2 miles along Chattoogue River and need to go across Burrells Ford Rd. So just drive past the parking and go down. When you see the bridge, look for the sign post of Sumter Forest on right and park there on the side of the road (BEFORE the bridge). Follow the trail and it would take less than 1/2 mile.

Moderate trail that starts a decent way from the parking lot. Hardest part is walking across a log to get to the waterfall, if you don't want to get your feet wet.

Beautiful waterfall. Fun, easy trail. Want to go back, camp and spend more time hiking the other trails. Several waterfalls in this area within a short hiking distance.

Beautiful area and well worth the hike. The last section of the hike was a little slower going due to downed trees and a portico of the trail had been washed out. The photo above was taken after some very heavy rain.

Really enjoyed this hike. Took my son and daughter and they had a lot of fun as well. There were also some geocaches off the trail. The waterfall is worth the short hike.
