A challenging loop meant for experienced hikers.  There are no trail markers and in some places no trail at all. Beware of rattlesnakes and ticks - some bushwhacking in scrub and high grass is involved. 8 creek crossings to get to the Falls and in the wet season, these will be over the tops of boots.  There are also several Nevada Creek crossings on the back side of this loop.  Hike at your own risk. Location is approximately 6 miles north of the north end of Lake Berryessa on remote Berryessa Knoxville Rd.  Parking is just prior to a concrete creek overflow section of roadway prior to MM24.  The hike begins at the green gate opposite the gravel parking area.
