More McCloud Falls Professional Reviews and Guides
"The McCloud River’s trio of waterfalls are among the most spectacular landmarks in the Mount Shasta area. They are certainly the finest collection of waterfalls around the mountain. The section of the McCloud River Trail that connects the Lower, Middle, and Upper Falls is one the most popular in the region, with good reason.
Traveling through a beautiful canyon rife with volcanic features, the easy, level trail links the three waterfalls with minimal elevation gain. With opportunities to get exhilaratingly close to the large cataracts, this trail has major payoff for very little effort."
--Bubba Suess, Hiking California's Mount Shasta Region (Falcon Guides).
