Northern California Waterfalls - waterfalls that we've visited north of Sacramento
This Northern California Waterfalls page is our survey of waterfalls that we’ve managed to visit pretty much anywhere north of the state capital in Sacramento. Even though Julie and I have lived in the state of California most of our lives, we’ve had a gaping hole in our survey of the waterfalls in the far north of the state for the first 16 years of our days of waterfalling together.
For one reason or another (i.e. drought, distance, life circumstances, etc.), we had missed out on California’s most spectacular waterfalls outside of Yosemite National Park. So having a showcase of such waterfalls was long overdue.
Nevertheless, after we’ve had opportunities to make a few trips to the northern part of our state in 2016, we can finally feel confident about putting this page together. Indeed, we’ve managed to visit the waterfalls located in the Gold Rush area of Tahoe National Forest, Nevada County, and Plumas National Forest. Moreover, we’ve also gone further north to where the geologic distinction between the southern end of the Cascade Ranges of the Pacific Northwest and the northernmost end of the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California were blurred.
Given that we’re covering a lot of real estate (California is a very big state, after all), there was no shortage of quality waterfalls. So we’ll always look forward to making more visits to Northern California to fully experience what our home state has to offer in the way of Nature and unforgettable family experiences…
