Everyone should take the time to stop here, a very short walk affords you a breathtaking view of the falls, a longer steeper walk gets you closer still. The falls were still thundering full force even in mid September

It is not very often you get such majesty with so little effort expended. Recommended for all ages and physical abilities.

This is the most beautiful falls. The hike around the falls was absolutely wonderful with the sound of the falls.

At first we thought we would try to park outside the park and walk in. We did but it was difficult because it involved about a 3/4 mile walk to the falls. I ended up going and getting the car and park inside the park because it was so awesome we decided to spend about 4 hours there.
The view of the falls and the geology is amazing. We did the loop trail which took us north to the lake and then back to the south of the falls. After the hike we drove down to the lake and had a simple short swim before heading on our way to Mt. Shasta City.

There are cabins there for staying in. They looked nice if even a bit close to each other.

Beautiful water fall that we didn't know was there. Loop trail takes you from one rim down to the base of the falls, then along the river a short distance, across a foot bridge, back to the base of the falls, across another footbridge and back up to the starting point. Tried to have a picnic lunch afterwards but the bees sent us back to the car. We loved the park though and saw no bees until we went to the picnic area.
