Enjoy a leisurely day hike or short walk along the upper McCloud River. This trail is accessed at several points along the McCloud River Loop Road and skirts the upper portion of the McCloud River. This trail begins at Lower Falls Day Use Area and winds its way for approximately 12 miles along the river to Cattle Camp Campground. Along the way you will pass the three falls of the upper McCloud River, displayed below, including the picturesque Middle Falls. The trail itself is a relatively easy hike with some paved sections. This trail is an excellent way for fishermen to access the river's edge to drop a fly or lure.
