Is there a shortcut from Hedge Creek Falls? 
There is a shortcut from Hedge Creek Falls to Mossbrae Falls. However, this shortcut is through the Sacramento River and can be a harder route to take. This shortcut features jagged rocks, slippery slopes, and ice cold waters.
How long is the hike to Mossbrae Falls? 
The hike is 2.8 miles round-trip.
Should I bring headphones on the hike? 
Since hiking to Mossbrae Falls is an active hike alongside an active train track, we would recommend not using headphones or having any other noise distractions.
