Super short, moderate hike w a few switchbacks, but the falls are great! Geology buffs will love the cliffs of columnar basalt

Easy hike to what might be an interesting falls after a big rain or lots of snow melt. Not that impressive otherwise; still a good place to stretch your legs after a long day of driving along I-5. Needs some trail repair down by the falls. Watch out for the poison oak.

Great little hike to and behind the falls and then on to a beautiful scenic overlook up and down the river. Definitely a hidden gem that I will go back to. Did this and 3 other trails along I-5 as part of a work trip. You can actually see this trail head from the off ramp it's so close. Couldn't give it a 5 due to it shortness.

I do this one often! The falls change regularly! The dog loves it!

Hedge Creek is always flowing. However when it is really flowing the falls are even more spectacular.

Beautiful falls hidden but very close to I5. Exit I5 at Exit 732 Dunsmuir Ave/Sisktyou Ave. The trailhead is in a small city park immediately adjacent to the interchange. You get to walk behind the falls. If you follow the trail to its end, you come to an overlook of the Sacramento River. There are plans (with some funds in place) to extend this trail across the Sacramento River and on to Mossbrae Falls.

Quiet little area - nice stream. Blink and you will drive by the Trail Head. Very flat and no elevation. Really like the stroll
