Mountain View Falls, California

Mountain View Falls, December 2009

At the end of a street in San Rafael is a hidden waterfall. This waterfall is known as Mountain View Falls. I found out about this waterfall on another waterfall website, and decided to visit since it seemed to be relatively easy to do…and it is easy to visit. You’ll have to park on the road, and then take the short “hike” to the falls. It’s not really a hike as much as a sidewalk adventure. The waterfall is 70+’ tall, though it’s not very wide. It’s probably best viewed after a lot of rain.


  1. I typed in the intersection between Grand Avenue and Mountain View Avenue on my GPS in order to help find the appropriate intersection. The waterfall is in San Rafael, CA.
  2. After the intersection, keep driving down Mountain View Avenue to the end of the road. The falls will be just a short distance further from the end of the road, though you can’t see them from the road itself.

Accessibility: 10/10 (easy)
Height: 70′
Length of Hike: 0.2 miles round-trip

Where in the World is Mountain View Falls?
