Horsetail & Ponytail Falls

Horsetail & Ponytail Falls

You can get to Horsetail falls by car to admire the marble-white cascade and see a much smaller cascade a half a mile north, Ponytail Falls. If you want to walk there you can take a hiking trail starting in the town of Seiad Valley, fifty miles from Yreka. Before you head off for the day to hike, check the road conditions because it is common that rock slides block the road. 

There is no parking lot – roadside parking only.
