The hike is an absolutely gorgeous hike along the creek through a forest of Redwoods. You’re never far away from the next waterfall as you climb up and past the rushing creek.
Cataract Falls consists of about 9 separate cascade waterfalls along Cataract Creek, depending on how you count them. They are all in the neighborhood of 25 ft. to 70 ft., and are all quite different and quite impressive!
It is non-stop excitement, but takes quite a while to complete this hike because you are always stopping to look at the waterfalls and take pictures.
The hike is about 2.6 miles long and it takes about 2 hours to complete.
For dog lovers, the great news is that you can bring your puppy with you. So if you have a furry friend that you would like to bring along, go for it. I will definitely bring mine!
Let’s meet at Fairfax Parkade parking lot in Fairfax at 10:45AM and carpool from there since the parking at the trailhead is very limited.
The address is: Bolinas Rd, Fairfax, CA 94930 (Fairfax Parkade).
Then we'll carpool to the trailhead, which is about 20 minutes away.
See you soon!
