Knickerbocker Falls drops steeply through Knickerbocker Canyon into the North Fork of the American River, just below the old Auburn dam site. The entire height of the waterfall The falls are about 500 ft. high, and can be viewed from afar across the canyon. You can get fairly close up to the lower section of the falls (71 ft. high), but you are still viewing it from the other side of the river. This waterfall is best seen right after a lot of rain. It significantly reduces in volume a few days after a rain storm. That is because it is fed by a reservoir up on top of the mountain in Knickerbocker Flats.
