Falls/Alpine Lakes

Siskiyou County offers visitors access to 272 lakes – everything from warmwater lakes brimming with bass and sunfish to remote alpine lakes perfect for fly fishermen or backpackers.

Water lovers aren’t limited to rivers and lakes; the McCloud River offers three spectacular, easy-access waterfalls.

Those visiting Dunsmuir can actually walk behind a waterfall at Hedge Creek Falls, while a short hike down the railroad tracks brings visitors to Dunsmuir’s Mossbrae Falls – where a whole river bluff erupts into falls.

Photographed extensively and seen in magazines worldwide, Mossbrae Falls offer a breathtaking glimpse of water cascading down a hillside of brilliant green moss, ferns and wildflowers.
