“This short, easy trail deposits visitors at secluded and uncrowded Foresta Falls”— Megan W
Family Friendly A short, easy, secluded trail that ends at a waterfall. The kids will love exploring the area.
Foresta Falls descends a total of about 200 feet, but the part that's most accessible and safe to reach is the still-impressive 60 foot cascade that flows in a wide spray across rocky ledges. The falls are split somewhat by the footbridge making it hard to visually appreciate the whole drop. It is possible to reach the upper cascades with some determined bush whacking but this is not recommended due to ticks, poison oak and slippery cliffs.
