When in town, make sure to stop at Mossbrae Falls and Hedge Creek Falls…
Hedge Creek Falls: EASY, 5 min. walk down past falls (trail goes underneath the falls!) to the river overlook north, giving you the perfect post-card/instagram shot of Mt Shasta. 4 minutes drive (in town).
Mossbrae Falls: Right in town, 3/4 mile walk north on tracks. Absolutely worth the walk! Allow 35 minutes or so for hike on tracks. Watch/listen for trains, but there is ample space for most of the walk to get out of the way of trains. 3 minutes drive, plus hiking. Allow 1.5 hours for a relaxed hike and visit to the falls. It is over 100 feet wide and spans a bend in the river with a train trestle just north. Use your black and white filter in pics to make it look ‘rustic’!
This is just a small slice of what’s to do around here… Ask in the lobby for a visitors’ guide to give you the full listing of the possibilities around here. Stay a week and we will fill your schedule each day with a new adventure. Bring the kids, and teach them something about the natural world around them in one of the most beautiful and diverse natural settings in California!

Here’s what Nancy wrote
“The Dunsmuir Lodge is a charming place to stay – a small, old-style I chose because they are pet-friendly and was traveling with my small dog and cat. I was very pleasantly surprised by the size of room, amenities (and great shower!) plus the owners are very friendly people who really care about their guests’ experience! My critters and I were so comfortable that we are booked for our return trip home. Looking forward to enjoying their hospitality again in July!”
Nancy’s private feedback for you:
“Thanks again for being pet-friendly, and the perfect stop on the way from Portland to Pacifica! Looking forward to seeing you again in July.”
