Trail to Mossbrae Falls in Dunsmuir Is Closed

Just found out from Paul Reichow that the route to Mossbrae Falls is closed for now. Get the details from the Redding Record Searchlight:

Though city officials have begun the process of securing land and funding to build an official trail to Mossbrae Falls, a pristine waterfall on the Sacramento River, it’s at least two years away, said Jim Lindley, Dunsmuir’s city manager.

The current path to the falls — long a locally held secret now widely publicized on waterfall aficionado websites — requires hikers to trespass along a potentially dangerous, milelong hike on Union Pacific Railroad tracks.

  1. Hi,

    We want to see the beauty of mossbrae fall, Is there no trail to go and see? may be longer way but that is ok. Or there was only one way and that is closed now.

    1. Sorry Sunil. The trail is closed for now. We hope to have a new trail created within a couple of years.

  2. We own property in Shasta Retreat where the trail to Moss Brad Falls is located. I’ve been walking that trail for 50 some years with no mishap. People who’ve been hurt don’t head the rules of walking the track. When you hear the trains, get off the track. It takes a train 1mile of track to come to a full stop. People think they have time. You don’t. It takes a good 2-3 to exit safely off a track. This trail has been used for 100+ years. Now as all of sudden it’s unsafe!
