Mossbrae Falls is one of the most scenic waterfalls in California. Approximately 50 feet (15 m) in height and 175 feet (53 m) wide, the falls are fed by springs, which course down the canyon wall, and into the Sacramento River, creating the effect of many waterfall streams falling into the river. The entire course of the falls is longer than 52 feet (16 m), however the upper cascades cannot be observed through flora which covers the mountainside. The bottom 50 feet (15 m) is a straight plunge into the river. Hiking to Mossbrae Falls is trespassing, and ever since the trailhead closure, efforts have been underway to gain public access and construct a trail.
