There are actually three levels to McCloud Falls: lower, middle and upper, each offering different views. Hiking to each of the falls is relatively easy. Each fall is accessible by car and a short walk to the vista point. It's about 3.5 miles roundtrip to see all three falls driving, and there is a path that leads to all three if you are walking.

This is certainly not a trip for the faint of heart or the inexperienced. Only experienced parties should consider the undertaking as this can be a particulary treacherous hike. Normally, even the climb of Mt. Shasta is considered to be quite a feat, but the idea of a winter ascent is met with raised eyebrows from those who clearly understand the difficulties posed by an off-season climb.
