We were planning to check out all 3 falls, but unfortunately due to shortage in parking, we were only able to see the lower falls and upper falls. Seemed like a very popular place to hang out for the locals on a hot summer day,...More

There are 3 sets of falls to visit in this area each one so unique. The lower falls can be used to wade in the water. Great trail systems and there is no fee.

This is one of those places that most folks don't get to see, a little off the beaten path. Just continue up the road from McCloud until you get to the road that takes you to the Middle Falls, then choose your path to the...More

I found this by accident either here on TA or elsewhere. Access is well marked off Highway 89 I think. Either way, there are 3 falls and you can park at one and hike on a trail to all, then back up. I think it...More

Who knew that California is graced with such awe-inspiring natural beauty? These sorts of powerful falls are often associated with Hawaii or posts along the Amazon. McCloud Falls at each of its three points is a must-see sight for all Californian residents and for locals...More

This is a must see when traveling around the Mt. Shasta / McCloud area of CA. Lower, Middle and Upper falls are fabulous. A very quiet area a distance from Rte 89, so you don't hear any traffic noise. Lovely place to hike around, or...More
