Kings Creek Falls, Bench Lake, and Sifford Lake Loop Professional Review and Guide
"The hike: First, there is the lovely Lower Meadow. Then the wild cascades along Kings Creek. Below these, steep Kings Creek Falls. Next, yawning caves tucked in gray cliffs that hover over the trail. Beyond, shallow Bench Lake in a secluded wooded bowl. Above, Sifford Lake in its perfect basin. It’s almost more fun than a hiker should be allowed on a single trail loop. Highlights: Wild cataracts, a waterfall, steep cliffs pocked with caves, a vernal pool, and a lovely lake—what more could you ask for in a hike?"
