Mossbrae Falls and Shasta Spings Resort

Grab your hiking shoes and cameras, pack a lunch and be ready to see some great Northern California Waterfalls!!! Mossbrae Falls is located in Dunsmuir and it's truly a spectacular Waterfall to visit. Just Gorgeous! Who needs Hawaii? Shasta Springs is located, further up the tracks, from Mossbrae. It was a popular summer resort on the Upper Sacramento River, during the late Nineteenth Century and early Twentieth Century. The resort was on the main line of the Southern Pacific Railroad, and natural springs on the property were the original sources of the water and beverages that became known as the Shasta brand of soft drinks. See some historical photos of the area here:

    This was the first event that I have attended. I came with a friend and 4 young teenagers. We ALL had a great day! There was a lot of people at this event, but it did not feel like it was too crowded. Every one seemed very nice. I had a good time and have signed up for a number of other events with this group.

    Thanks for all of your hard work. It is appreciated! Lindi

    It was a great day and the waterfalls & springs were gorgeous. Thanks to Richard and Gay, we finally were able to see a train on the tacks when Marvin & I went back up the tracks to find them.

    It was great to see everyone get going for the hike. Eventhough I couldn't join you I really enjoyed meeting everyone at the carpool place. So glad everyone had a great time.

    Okay.... so a couple of us missed the turn at the RR bridge. However, in the process, look at the bonus we found about a mile up the RR tracks. Take a look at our pictures and tell us this isn't a bonus.

    I always enjoy this walk. The falls are great and there are many more as you continue along the railroad.

    Could we meet in the parking lot (used to be Wiley's Grocery store (south of Cave Springs motel), right past the ballfield, don't know if it is another business or vacant now)? Would be a good spot to decide how to get to the RR tracks anyway. Parking on Scarlett Way is VERY limited. Maybe walk down or shuttle?

    Hey, is anybody else interested in spending the rest of the day exploring the town of Mt. Shasta? Lots of nice shops and restaurants.
