Another beautiful day for a hike, and Brandy Creek Falls still has water flowing despite the decline of precipitation this winter. Felt great to get outside and explore around these falls again. I love how many awesome places there are around Redding, and how so many of them are almost never crowded.

The road to this hike is finally fully open again, marking the beginning of Waterfall Week at Whiskeytown NRA. Brandy Creek had whitewater rapids throughout almost the entire hike, which ended in several powerful cataracts and waterfalls. A wonderful time to hike this trail--any more water and the path around the falls would have been too flooded.

There was a windy, sometimes narrow or steep, dirt road leading up to the trailhead which had parking and a bathroom. The trail itself started wide and there was a fork near the beginning, with the right path leading down to the creek. The left was the trail which follows the south side of the creek until reaching the lower and upper falls. There were several pools that looked inviting, but I knew they were freezing cold. The falls were gorgeous and there was plenty of area to explore since there were rocks in the creek between each smaller falls. I saw several people along the hike, but had the entire falls to myself about 8 minutes after I got there. It was a great hike to start up again, since I fell off some skates last week and couldn't hike last weekend.
