Horsetail Falls Professional Review and Guide
"Sacramentans desiring to view one of the most scenic waterfalls in the Sierra Nevada need only drive a short distance up Hwy 50 and hike 1.5 miles to visit spectacular Horsetail Falls. Easily one of the top 10 waterfalls in California, Horsetail competes with the falls of Yosemite Valley when it comes to scenic grandeur. Unfortunately, it also competes with Yosemite Valley in terms of crowds and parking fees. But its proximity to Sacramento and its easy access are hard to beat. Even if you don’t make it all the way to the base of the falls, the cascades on lower Pyramid Creek make for a fine family outing."
