This is a challenging dayhike.
The ford of Kings Creek at Mile 3.7 may be difficult until
September; be careful.
This is the hard way to visit
Kings Creek Falls. You go up switchbacks, and over the
waterless Flatiron Ridge. From there the part up to
the falls is blessed with creeks. But then back down
from the falls can be hot through the open forest.
Bench Lake dries up in late season.
This is a fine hike on a cool
autumn day. Recommended for seasoned hikers.
