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.

While not as scenic as the middle waterfall, this upper waterfall exceeds in height. The swift river escapes a narrow gorge to crash down small steps to a beautiful pool at its base, where an aquamarine pool will catch your attention. This waterfall is easily accessible by trail.
