Fall River Valley

The Fall River Valley is located where the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range meets the Cascades. The Valley was originally used for Fort Crook to protect travelers on the Shasta-Yreka Rd and the Lockhart ferries in 1857. In the Fall River Valley you will find many farms and ranches, and gorgeous state parks such as Ahjumawi, a lava springs park that is only accessible by boat. The park has crystal clear waters and huge trout. It is even complete with Native American fish traps. Ahjumawi is truly something you must witness. The valley is also known for a multitude of different recreational activities, as well as highly productive farm land. Now the valley is known for a multitude of different recreational activities, as well as highly productive farm land, which is of course, rich in history.

Recreational activities in the Valley include:

The course is usually uncrowded and offers an intimate playing experience. It has received mention for excellent “pace of play” and as an “outstanding value” in Golf Digest’s “Places to Play”. Hole 3 is a long 672-yard, par 5, with a double dogleg fairway it was one of the last par 6 holes in California and always provides a challenge for any player.

Fishing, between the volcanic peaks of Mt Shasta to the north and Mt Lassen to the south hold the finest concentration of wild trout waters in California. Two remarkable spring creeks and three freestone rivers offer a range of fly fishing opportunities unmatched on the west coast. These rivers are all within easy driving distance of each other, as well as many other tributaries worth visiting!

Birding, Eastern Shasta County is an exceptional birding area. In the spring and the fall, in particular, it’s possible to see 50 to 60 species in a day. With so many lakes, streams, and wetlands, vast numbers of waterfowl stop to rest and feed on their migrations making the Fall River Valley an attraction to waterfowl hunters. A few birds that reside in the valley include nesting bald and golden eagles and osprey, sandhill cranes, and American avocets. Prairie falcons and peregrine falcons nest in the canyons of the Pit River. Goshawks and spotted owls may be seen and heard in the forests. The Ash Creek Wildlife Area, a few miles east of Fall River Mills, is home to a great number of species.
