Cascade Falls, California

Cascade Falls in December 2009

I showed up pretty late at Cascade Falls. The sun wasn’t setting just yet, but inside of the park where the falls are found, it was getting dark. That made it very difficult to photograph this smaller waterfall.

Getting there is a pretty easy ordeal, so that is the one benefit to seeing this falls. I think it could be very pretty when the lighting is right. There were a number of other people photographing the falls, so it actually seems pretty popular.


  1. From US-101, exit at CA-1 for Mill Valley/Stinson Beach.
  2. Turn right onto Almonte Boulevard.
  3. Go about 3 miles to Throckmorton Avenue. (I set the GPS to find the intersection between Almonte Blvd and Throckmorton.)
  4. Turn left and drive just over 1 mile to a parking area on the right for Cascade Falls.  Follow the short path to the falls.

Accessibility: 10/10 (easy)
Height: 18′
Length of Hike: 0.5 miles round-trip
