During the summer the falls are spectacular. Rancheria Falls is approximately 150' high and 50' wide. There are plenty of rocks on which to sit and have a snack or simply enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

The trail is of gentle grade. Steep at the base of the Falls. Climbing around the rocks or to the top of the falls is not recommended due to the steep slope and slippery rocks.
