Easy hike along ADA paved trail to get to a waterfall. Great place to take the family or stop for lunch

From Redding pass the visitor center on highway 299 and pass the lake. Make a left turn on to Crystal Creek Road. Follow this road for about 2 miles. There will be signs to make a left turn to Crystal Creek Falls. This is less of a hike and more of a walk. The trail is paved. It is less than a half mile to the falls from the trailhead. It is a great place to take children and people that don't want to hike far. The waterfall is nice and there are picnic areas to eat. It is a great place for lunch if you want to see all the waterfalls of Whiskeytown. Do one or two in the morning stop here for lunch and finish the others in the afternoon.
