Hedge Creek Falls

Hedge Creek Falls

North of Redding in Dunsmuir there is a waterfall called the Hedge Creeks Falls. Hedge Creek runs off into the Sacramento River and is very popular due to its close proximity to I-5 making it a ideal stopping point for travelers. There is a small cave behind the waterfall, that visitors can walk behind. You will also find a viewing platform over the river, with a view of Mount Shasta. To get to the waterfall and the viewing platform you take a short hiking trail, that starts at a small park off the Dunsmuir Ave exit on Interstate 5.
