A relentless climb up an old logging road leads to a waterfall that once was a well-kept secret. As you make your way up the unforgiving trail to Whiskeytown Falls, you may assume that the nonstop climbing was what screened this waterfall from common knowledge for more than 40 years. Not so, according to park literature: Loggers working in the rugged forest when it was in private hands undoubtedly knew of the falls, as did rangers in the 1960s, when the land was preserved as a national recreation area.
