Codfish Falls Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The trail to Codfish Falls has the flavor of adventure, skimming through a hard-toreach section of the North Fork American River canyon to a pretty cascade tucked away in a narrow gorge.
The trail leading to secluded Codfish Falls follows the North Fork American River, skirting cool pools that, especially as the sun strengthens in summertime, invite side trips to sandbars and rocky beaches along the riverbank. The falls flow down a jumble of dark rocks in a shady enclave just north of the river valley. It’s a year-round cascade watering a pocket of verdant mosses, oaks, and grasses in an environment parched for several months each year."
