Tumbling down the head of the deep, ice-sculpted, granite cleft of Pyramid Creek canyon, the thin ribbon of Horsetail Falls is dramatically scenic at any time of year, but especially spectacular during the height of snowmelt. Located a mere 1.5 miles from a major highway linking the Sacramento Valley with Lake Tahoe, conditions are ripe for this area to be very popular with both recreationists and sightseers alike. Recent parking improvements and construction of a short loop trail have made the area even more attractive.
