The trail ride follows part of this route along the west side of the river. A short distance upstream from the resort ruins leads to nearby Faery Falls, where Ney Springs Creek crashes nearly 60 feet down a granite cliff face, forming a clear pool at the bottom. It may be the tallest waterfall in Siskiyou County.
To get there take WA Barr Road going to Lake Siskiyou; after crossing the dam take the first left going to Castle Lake; from this road take the first left onto Ney Springs Road (dirt). This is a sharp left on a somewhat blind corner so turning must be done with caution. About 2.5 tenths of a mile there is a small parking area in the trees on the left. Across the road is a gate and the trail starts on the other side of the gate. The trail is easy to follow although when you come into the area that has some log slash and it appears there was a deck that was burned, veer slightly left to stay on the trail. When you come to an intersection, go right uphill. You will pass the short trail down to the falls before finding trees to tie to. Do NOT attempt to take horses down the path to the falls as it is not a horse trail. Total length is 1.45 miles and is shaded the entire way through a primarily tall oak forest with gentle terrain the majority of the ride. If you take a left turn downhill at the intersection, it will take you past the old resort and through a dispersed camping area near the water.
