MIST FALLS
47050 Generals Highway, Three Rivers, CA 93271
(559) 335-2856
Amenities:

A sandy trail aside a short series of cascades leads to Mist Falls, one  of Kings Canyon National Parks largest waterfalls, where the South Fork  of the Kaweah River drops 100 feet over a granite incline.

Mist Falls is a fantastic introductory hike in Sequoia/Kings.  From the Big Stump Entrance to King's  Canyon National Park, take Highway 180 towards Grant Grove and Road's  End. Follow the highway north and then east as it dips deep into the  canyon.

Follow the Highway to the appropriately named "Road's  End." Park and start your hike next to the Wilderness Ranger Station  that issues back-country permits for backpackers. Hikers do not need to  stop.

A loop can be made  of this hike by crossing the footbridge on the way down and walking back  along the Southern bank of the King's River.  Generally the  falls are most stunning in the spring, but be careful.  Rocks near the  waterfall are slippery and dangerous if proper caution is not taken.

Plan on about four hours for this 8 mile hike.  Beyond the waterfall the  canyon flattens into Paradise Valley--a popular camping spot.
