Great short hike to view the falls for those who don't want a strenuous hike. Improvements were being made on the trail, small parking area nearby.

The paved walkway to the falls is easy to negotiate and the falls are spectacular to see. This is our second visit and it always amazes.

It was just a short walk up a paved path to to get to this waterfall. It was worth the stop to check it out.

Take the time to stop. A short 5 minute walk to the falls for some awesome photos. If it works out have lunch or a snack here.

I can't predict if the falls will be "roaring". Check the road through Kings Canyon for the Roaring Falls stop.
