Wildways: Explore Majestic Waterfalls

Lace up your hiking boots and spend a beautiful spring day on the McCloud River. Follow the path bordering the river for breathtaking views of three spectacular waterfalls which tumble over basaltic lava flows. Gaze in wonder at the river through old-growth trees. You will be amazed by the sheer power of the river as it carves through the volcanic landscape. Making a stop at all three waterfalls (Lower, Middle, and Upper), you can get up-close with each waterfall and are sure to be impressed with the volume of falling water. Please be prepared for an easy to moderate 3.8-mile round trip hike and bring your own water. Lunch included. Shasta Land Trust’s Wildways series of fundraising events is a fun and unique way for people to contribute to the preservation of significant lands in far northern California. Connecting people and places, the Wildways events feature some of the most interesting and fun outings in the North State! Hosted by volunteers, all proceeds from ticket sales support Shasta Land Trust’s mission to conserve local land.
