Location: Plumas National Forest

Permit/Pass: None

Trails: NF Map

Directions: From the town of Graeagle, on CA SR 89, head south for about a mile and a half. Turn right onto Gold Lake Highway and drive a bit over a mile and a half to a left turn onto Frazier Creek Rd. Follow this road for around 4 miles to the Frazier Falls parking area on the left.

Synopsis: Frazier Falls is a quite pretty cascade that's worth the half-mile walk to its viewing area. The trail is quite flat and good for kids, the elderly and wheelchairs. It's a bit of a drive, but this is also a nice spot for picnicking and just hanging out.

Trail Notes: Frazier Creek road continues to the south but from here on it's little more than dirt and gravel. The traveling isn't hard, and you'll come out near the entrance to Gold Lake, but if your vehicle rides low it may not be worth the risk.

Turn by Turn:

  -- Not a lot to worry about for this little walk. The trailhead is next to the restrooms, and there's no way to get lost. Just follow the path to the fenced off viewing area, then stroll back at your leisure.
