Really nice waterfall that you can walk behind. There is a short trail starting from a small park right at the north-side freeway ramp for Dunsmuir (just up from Cedar Lodge). This hike is short on a well groomed trail, but has some altitude change....More

At the north end of town at the freeway entrance/exit, you'll find a little parking area for the falls. Its a short hike down and a short hike back. The falls are pretty but small. Its mostly shady.

I agree with the other review, although the trail down to the falls is relatively short, it is pretty uneven and steep in parts.
