Join a Park Ranger on a hike to Whiskeytown Falls on Saturday March 17, 2007 at 10:00 am. Visitors should meet at the James  K. Carr Trailhead located 4 miles up Crystal Creek Road off of Highway 299 west. Parking is limited so consider carpooling.

 

March is a wonderful time to hike in Whiskeytown. The falls should have plenty of water with the recent rain and snow and spring wildflowers are just starting to make an appearance.

 

The 1.7 mile hike to Whiskeytown Falls is considered strenuous with several steep climbs,  drop-offs and narrow footing.  Sturdy hiking boots are highly recommended.  Dress appropriately for the weather.  Bring drinking water, snack and consider bringing a hat, gloves, camera, binoculars, and hiking stick.

 

Rain will cancel the hike.
