What? : This is one of
the park more popular hikes, 2.5 miles long out and back will take you through
a meadows, canyon cliff viewing point, and waterfalls. The lower section of this
hike to the waterfall was damage by Dixie fire.
If you want to
hike longer you can combine this into a 4.6 miles loop trail that pass through
a lake and few landscapes viewing points.
This loop trail
section was also damaged by the Dixie fire, but when I hiked here in June 2022 the
trail was already cleared up by the park trail maintenance crew.
Where? : The Kings
Creek trailhead is located on the main park road, 13 miles from Kohm
Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center (south park entrance) and 14 miles from Loomis
Ranger Station (north park entrance).
parking is on the wide road pull-outs at both side of the park main road.
When? : Summer and
early fall. At winter the road and the trail are covered with deep snow.
