A paved, wheelchair-accessible path leads to a sprawling waterfall on Crystal Creek. The falls on Crystal Creek are newly come to the landscape, a lovely little addition to a massive construct of water diversion and storage facilities known as the Central Valley Project. The project, built to control flooding and provide water for agriculture in the Great Valley, consists of reservoirs and canals that stretch from the alpine watersheds surrounding Redding to the thirsty agricultural lowlands surrounding Bakersfield, more than 400 miles to the south.
