With King Creek Ridge trail as the ascent and King Creek Canyon trail as the descent, this has to be one of the nicest trails I have ever hiked! You get a beautiful view as you climb the ridge and then come back down through the canyon. As we hike through the canyon we will cross the stream multiple times, get ready for wet feet!
