Let’s Go Chasing Northern California Waterfalls
Read on to learn where you can find these gorgeous Northern California waterfalls!
1. Stanislaus National Forest
Embark on a trip through Stanislaus National Forest and follow the Arnold Rim Trail. As you follow the path, you’ll find San Antonio Falls Overlook and a trickling stream with falls above. Dip down into the canyon towards the bank of the stream and look up. You’ll be amazed as you watch the cascading water flow over the granite mountains.
Make the most out of your trip to the National Forest and enjoy some other fun-filled outdoor activities. The park is a fantastic location for kayaking, horseback riding, fishing, and more!
2. Yosemite Falls
Take a drive to the one and only Yosemite National Park to find waterfalls unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. The tallest waterfall in the park is Yosemite Falls. The upper falls drop over 2500 feet into the lower fall. Wow! November is an excellent time to check out the falls after the late–season storms.
3. Bridalveil Falls
Yosemite is also home to Bridalveil Fall. People travel from near and far year-round to gaze at this natural beauty. The falls reach about 620 feet high and are one of the first visible waterfalls upon entering the park, making it easily accessible for people of all ages. It’s an easy hike that anyone can master!
