Once you reach the bottom of the falls, you can stop here and get some pictures or ascend the slippery slopes, using the hand rails for balance. This part is a little dangerous!
Its rare to hear of something being off the map until the 21st century, but that just goes to show that Northern California is one wild and rugged place. Its nice to know that things are still being "discovered"!
Read. Plan. Get Out There!
