This hike leads, arguably, to the prettiest waterfall in Whiskeytown National Recreation Area: a spectacular 120-foot drop that changes its attitude with the changing seasons. Better still, the best vantage point of the falls is on a mossy granite slab across the ridge from where Boulder Creek begins its tumble to Whiskeytown Lake.
