I lobe this place every time I come here. A decent hike from Burrells Ford parking area to the falls, but an easy one. Only difficult area is at the end when decending down to the falls...you have to climb down rocks so be careful!...More

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...More

Have hiked many times over the last 15 years, but this years hike was the easiest. They finally cleared off some of the fallen trees. It is a moderate hike, okay for families, some spots have roots & small challenges for some. We had 4...More

A short hike from the parking lot at Burrell 's Ford is this tucked away gorgeous falls. An easy hike for a hiker but some uneven footing if you are used to city sidewalks.
