Horsetail & Ponytail Falls

Horsetail & Ponytail Falls

Horsetail Falls is one of the more remote waterfalls in Siskiyou County, but this reliable marble-white cascade has the advantage of being accessible by car and the added bonus of a second small cascade just a half a mile farther north known as Ponytail Falls.  If you’d rather hoof it, there’s also a difficult hiking trail that starts from the tiny town of Seiad Valley fifty miles east of Yreka. Small rock slides can occasionally block road access, so check local conditions before heading north on Seiad Creek Road.

Category: Easy

Distance: .4 miles

Elevation Gain: 98 ft.

Route Type: Out & Back

Directions: There’s also a difficult hiking trail that starts from the tiny town of Seiad Valley fifty miles east of Yreka.
