With its multiple layers of water coming from hundreds of springs, Mossbrae Falls is one of the most beautiful sites in California. It flowsinto the Sacramento River in the Shasta Cascade area near Dunsmuir. The falls are 15 m (50 ft) high and 53 m (175 ft) wide. The upper cascades of the waterfall are covered by lush vegetation which makes it especially scenic.
Mossbrae Falls can be found south of the lower section of Shasta Springs. One-mile (1.6 km) long trail to the Massbrae Falls goes along the Union Pacific Railroad tracks. After a tragic incident in 2011 it was determined that the path was unsafe due to proximity to tracks, so walking there is considered trespassing. Anyway, Union Pacific and the City of Dunsmuir have agreed to find a safer route to preserve public access to Mossbrae Falls.
