Make the Trip to Kings River Falls
Its name probably gives this away, but Kinds River Falls is located on the Kings River, which is all part of the Kings River Falls Natural Area. Much like one of our other favorite rivers in the area, the Buffalo National River, Kings River is located about an hour south of our Inn. Also, just like Buffalo River, this trip is well worth the time it takes to get there and can be combined with other activities in the area to make for a more exciting day trip!
Kings River Falls is pretty easy to get to. The trail is only 1.8 miles (roundtrip) and is fairly flat and easily accessible. The river is characterized by its steep rocky slopes, sandstone bluffs, and surrounding hardwood forest. Though the waterfall won’t be quite a peak volume – you’d have to come during the spring or fall for that – there is a wonderful swimming hole just beneath the falls. It’s a great place to cool off on a hot day and makes for a delightful afternoon spent in nature.
We recommend enjoying a picnic lunch at the falls, before heading on to explore more of the area, includingn the scenic Buffalo National River, or any of the other waterfalls listed below.
