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.
