Waterfall sights in Dunsmuir
- Sort by:
There's a small waterfall up a forest path from the riverside gardens, but Mossbrae Falls is the larger and more spectacular of Dunsmuir's waterfalls. To get there from Dunsmuir Ave, turn west onto Scarlett Way, passing under an archway marked 'Shasta Retreat.' Park by the railroad tracks (there's no sign), then walk north along the right-hand side of the tracks for a half-hour until you reach a railroad bridge built in 1901.
Backtracking slightly from the bridge, you'll find a little path going down through the trees to the river and the falls. Be extremely careful of trains as you walk by the tracks - the river's sound can make it impossible to hear them coming.
