Kings Bluff Falls are well known and easy to get to, the others perhaps not as much.
This suggestion is a track to some of the waterfalls on the Pedestal Rock side of this area, although this is off trail and is a moderate bushwhack.
These falls are fairly rain dependent, and while I wouldn't rate this as a hard hike, it is effort that is best rewarded with waterfalls on show, right?

Leave the Pedestal Rock Loop at the waypoint indicated (this is an unnamed fall) and head down hill. Midway Falls, Double Spigot and Morris Ridge Falls are all just a few hundred feet down this drainage. This is steep and rocky in places.
Head down stream again by a few hundred feet, and you will meet Tripet Falls, and then Pedestal Rock Falls a few hundred feet again.

This is a combination of rock hopping and criss crossing the creek as you best can, although would be doable for most. The bushwhack back up hill to get back on trail wasn't too bad, but probably no better than just reversing your direction and going back up the creek bed. At the time of our visit (1/30/21), it's leaves off so not at all over grown or difficult to manage either way.
