This is SO WORTH the mile hike each way along the tracks. It is stunning, and I plan to visit each time I return to this area. I can't wait to pack in a lunch and spend a few hours playing in the water and around the rocks.

The access is tricky. We recommend the Prospect Avenue fishing area, but you'll need to cross the river to get to the railroad tracks. Walk to the right, north, until just before the next bridge. Take the trail down to the Falls. Bring a lunch and drinks.

I've been up that way with my family several times, from the time I was very young until, most recently, when I was about 18 or 19. It's always been a beautiful sight, and I'm not sure when it became illegal to be over there, but I have a feeling it was before the last time I went (I've got... More

The walk on the tracks is considered tress passing, but we were bothered by no one and it would be hard to actually get hit by the train. The only time a train passes us was pretty cool to witness, right when we got to the trail, and it was only going about 20 mph so it's not dangerous unless... More

After reading the reviews needed to check it out -- and WOW. Seriously amazed that these falls exist in California. A tropical paradise off of a hot and desolate stretch of working rail road tracks. The walk was not too long or hard, and it was easy to not get hit by a train. One passed us on the return... More

Due to some train accident a couple of years ago they say it's illegal to go there now. However, in spite of the signs saying "no trespassing, private property" nobody bothered us and we were not the only ones there! The "private property" belongs to the Union Pacific Railroad and I'm not sure how they would enforce this. Anyways, it's... More

This is a beautiful place, and even though you're technically not allowed to get here (along Union Pacific tracks), no one will bother you. You just have to make sure to park far enough away to not get a parking ticket. Finding good directions to get here is tough. Head north on Dunsmuir Avenue from town, and then a little... More

Be careful walking along side the tracks. Not difficult but you need to pay attention. The waterfall is really pretty and the greenery surrounding it makes for great photos. Burney Falls is close, it is easier to get to, taller and safer. Both are worth your time to visit.

We were a big group that went on this hike over the Labor day weekend. It was an absolute delight walking all the way to the falls. The water is crystal clear! We were there in the evening and the sun setting over the river was great to watch! Definitely would go again!

Difficult access ...but can be walked from Shata Reatreat which is about three miles by the railroad tracks. A nice quiet place to think about the past.
