McCloud River Waterfalls Trail

McCloud River Waterfalls Trail

Skipping Upper McCloud Falls would be like walking out of a mystery movie two-thirds of the way through. All three of these misting falls are encompassed in granite, but the similarities end there. In contrast, Lower Falls are tame while Middle Falls exude a spiritual feel where a soul can hark back to the days when the Wintu Indians must have found deep peace on one of the huge rocks at the scene. Intense Upper Falls aren’t as photogenic as Middle Falls but are arguably the most breathtaking and certainly carry the most water force.
