  • Directions

Potem fallsJust outside Redding, is Potem Falls, a stunning waterfall.  It isnarrow at the top and fans out at the bottom as it plunges 69 ft. off a cliff into the Pit River arm of Lake Shasta.A great place.


From Redding, drive east on Hwy #299 for 29.9 miles. Turn left on Fenders Ferry Rd. for 9.1 miles. A 4x4 high-clearance vehicle is necessary for this road, but the last half mile is a bit rough. Look for a large pullout on left side of road (it is now signed). A trail leads down to the waterfall. You can hear the falls from the road.
