Nice little waterfall close to 180. Requires maybe 200 yards of walking, not more. There were people going underneath the waterfall to cool off. I was content with standing on the outskirts, because there was still a thin mist of cool water vapors that penetrated...More

These falls are about 40 minutes from Kings Canyon and a must if you are in the area. Since there are not a lot of things to see make the trip worthwhile and go see these falls.

Should still be going. Worth a quick stop especially if you’re already going that direction. It’s right off the side of the road, so it doesn’t take extra time to check it out. Enjoy!
