UD's ANNUAL Hike To Cataract Falls:
One of the most photographed waterfalls in California!
Seriously.... the falls look just like this!!!
Step out of your car, walk a few steps and let the Mother Nature take your breath away with these amazing waterfalls!
Cataract trail is located in Marin county and is one of the most popular waterfalls in the county. The sound of streams and waterfalls can be heard through the lush forest and drowns out the noise of the outside world.
Distance & Difficulty: This is a short but moderate 2.6 mile out and back hike. Trailhead elevation starts at 680 feet and climbs to about 1100 feet in a short distance, but then levels off reaching a high point of about 1400 feet in another 0.8 mile. Some areas, mostly the steps, are very steep and slippery.
The Payoff: Incredible views of the hills and the valley is your reward for the climb. Every step is worth it as you ascend.... the views are absolutely worth it... we PROMISE!!
