Waterfall Loop!

Do the Waterfall Loop in Redding Shasta Cascade Region

We have a waterfall idea—make that five waterfall ideas, when you do the Waterfall Loop. Visit five waterfalls located in the Redding Shasta Cascade region. Redding is centrally located for easy access to iconic waterfalls that are going bananas this year!

The Waterfall Loop can be done in one full day, or a few days if you want to linger and soak it all in—and by soaking we mean the swimming holes! Hit highlight McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park, consistently named a top waterfall in America.

And definitely don’t miss McCloud Falls. This three-tier rager (Lower, Middle, Upper) is reached via a beautiful hiking trail, with a bonus: swimming holes!
