Kings Creek Falls is one of the most popular points of interest in Lassen Volcanic National Park.  The 2.3-mile loop to the 30-foot falls offers great views, the opportunity to see wildlife and also takes hikers by a series of cascading falls that are quite impressive.  
The trail is well maintained and easy to navigate although a little rocky in places.  
As you head back toward the trailhead, you have two choices in which way to go; the way you came or via the Cascade Foot Trail which is a one-way trail.  We highly suggest you take the latter.  It's not anymore difficult then heading back the way you came, it's shorter and offers some spectacular cascading falls.  It's really pretty cool. 
Distance:  Just less than 2.5 miles, round-trip. 
Degree of Difficulty: Easy
Dogs: No
Camping:  Lassen National Volcanic Park offers a variety of camping.  Click HERE for more information. 
More info:
There is a platform at the waterfall that is a great place to enjoy a picnic or just relax. If you're looking to visit another waterfall in the park, take the hike to Mill Creek Falls, the park's highest falls.  Check out our section on Lassen Volcanic National Park for more things to do while you're there.  

How to get there:
Take a look at the map above for the location of the trailhead.  Be sure to grab a park map at the entrance station when you visit.
