This hike is pretty incredible.  Located just east of McCloud off of Highway 89, you get three waterfalls within an easy four-mile round-trip hike.  The trail is well maintained and runs along the McCloud River taking you by Lower, Middle and Upper Falls
There is an incline if you start at Lower Falls and head toward Upper Falls and the decline runs the other way although quite a bit of the trail is flat.  Because there is parking available at all three falls, you can start from wherever you want.  The air is fresh and the falls are beautiful.  This hike is worth every step.
