Rancheria Falls Trail Professional Review and Guide

"What you see is what you get on this one. A short, moderate climb to a 150-foot waterfall is impressive enough for the trail to be designated as a national recreational trail."

A pretty easy hike, dog and kid friendly, and beautiful views! It is a steady incline to the top but not that steep. The falls were really lovely! You won't get that wet from the falls, just a little bit of misty spray.

A must if you're in the Huntington Lake area! A very leisurely hike, the falls are worth spending a while at. You can make your way around and up above the falls for some great views and refreshing river pools! Not many people take advantage of the trail, so this definitely gets points for being peaceful. Just hop in the water at the base of the falls and relax. Pack a picnic or bring a book -- great place to clear your mind!
