Create an itinerary including Hedge Creek Falls
Hedge Creek Falls is a waterfall on Hedge Creek, in the Shasta Cascade area in Dunsmuir, California. There is a small cave located behind the waterfall, allowing visitors to walk behind the cascading water. Shortly after the waterfall, hedge creek flows into the Sacramento River south of Mossbrae Falls. There is a viewing platform over the river, with a view of Mount Shasta. Access to the waterfall and viewing platform is via a short hiking trail. The trail starts at a small park off the Dunsmuir Ave/Siskiyou Ave exit on Interstate 5. The waterfall is 0.2 miles (0.32 km) down Hedge Creek Falls Trail. The close proximity to Interstate 5, makes the waterfall a very popular stopping point for passing motorists.

  • Don't miss it!! From the easily-reached trailhead platform, with its view of snow-capped Mt Shasta, down to the falls with their unique "walk-behind" feature, and on to the small viewing platform.....  more

  • It is not a long walk. So pretty and refreshing to see. Easy water fall to visit. Easy to find and park to walk down to it. Watch out for poison oak though.

  • Awesome water fall right off Highway 5. Park in designated parking and it's less than half a mile down to the base of the fall where you can walk behind the falls and enjoy a unique view! Go and check it out!
  • It's gorgeous and the trail is very well maintained. There were quite a bit of people there but it was still a nice place to go. Not a long way to walk from where the parking is to the waterfall and gorgeous views of Mt. Shasta. I would suggest that people who go there with their animals please don't leave the bags with their excrement along the trail. If you bent down to pick it up and put it in a bag you should be able to dispose of it in the proper place and not line the sides of the trail with it. Have respect for nature and leave nothing behind.
