Roaring River Falls
A 0.10-mile (0.16-km), sloped path leads to views of the canyon and a waterfall. The paved trail is wide with a moderate to steep slope (10% running slope, over 2% cross slope). Slope varies from level landings, increasing to 12% and eventually decreasing to a gentle slope of 6%. The trail ends at small, paved landing.
Muir Rock is located at an area called The Road’s End. Here, you’ll find a short path to Muir Rock, located along the Kings River. This large granite boulder is named in honor of the naturalist John Muir. The trail has a hard-packed dirt surface. Nearby, a wilderness permit office has a rudimentary ramp to access the building and inquire about local trails. Cross the street from the office to reach accessible vault restrooms.
Kings Canyon Tactile Model
A tactile, bronze relief model illustrating the topography of Kings Canyon can be found adjacent to the entrance to the amphitheater, near the Cedar Grove Visitor Center. This model is at a reachable height for visitors using wheelchairs, is surrounded by level pavement, and is cane detectable.
