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:
