Little Mashel Falls


Day Hike - Little Mashel Falls

We will visit Little Mashel Falls, a series of waterfalls along the Little Mashel River. Falls are very scenic and should have good water flow this time of year! A short walk down a gravel road/trail crossing two bridges and then up a hill above the river. Three trails down to three different areas of the falls. I previewed this hike on Sunday and the Falls are spectacular!!
