The Stunning Kings Creek Falls in California (with Map & Photos)

Kings Creek Falls is one of the top attractions in Lassen Volcanic National Park, one of the least-visited national parks in California. The grand 30-foot waterfall roars over the cliff, framed by moss and ferns and other green elements that make for a spectacular sight from the lookout.

The three-mile loop to Kings Creek Falls is rated moderate, especially since the return is up a steep stone stairway. You can also choose to return along the path that descended 700 feet to the lookout.

The trail passes through a meadow in the driveway, and you may see blooming wildflowers if you visit in season. Wear suitable hiking boots with good grip, because the trail can be muddy and the stairs slippery, and you can find snow until summer.
