Located just west of the border of Kings Canyon National Park along the stretch of Highway 180 that falls within Sequoia National Forest still within Kings Canyon, Grizzy Falls is a small waterfall and picnic area where Grizzly Creek flows into the South Fork of the Kings River. The area offers river access next to a picturesque stretch of the wild and scenic river and a nice spot for a picnic or walk after driving the windy road that drops town to the canyon floor.

Being adjacent to the highway, Grizzly Falls sees a fair amount of traffic from travelers stopping on their way to and returning from Cedar Grove and Road's End within the park proper.

Good trout fishing can be found in nearby river waters during the summer and fall after the snowmelt has tapered off.
