Hike to King Creek Falls

0.6 Miles Total - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Mary Moss

It is an easy 0.6 mile hike to a picturesque 70-foot waterfall where you feel you could relax all day with your feet in the water. The trail runs through a mixture of hardwoods, rhododendron and mountain laurel.

Very nice dog-friendly and family-friendly adventure! The hike is not long at all and the end result is a beautiful 70 ft waterfall with a pooled area at the bottom!  Old logs are around for sitting on and relaxing while enjoying your lunch or snacks...
