Devil’s Falls

Devils Falls (or Devil’s Falls) may not require any hiking, but it involved driving the dusty and twisty Yankee Jim’s Road between Colfax and Foresthill.

Hollow Falls

Hollow Falls was a short detour off the Phantom Falls Trail in the North Table Mountain Ecological Reserve, where I noticed croaking frogs and wildflowers.
