Burney Falls, Shasta County
5-star hike | 1 mile loop | Easy | Shasta County, Northern California -
Without question Burney Falls is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the state. The 129ft waterfall thrills visitors to McArthur Burney Falls Memorial State Park all year round, even when the California summer has dried up every other waterfall around. Located in the Cascade mountains, forty miles north of Lassen Volcanic National Park the falls are given their longevity by the release of melt-water from porous volcanic rock from the surrounding mountains.
Two large streams cascade from the top of the falls and are accompanied by curtains of water fed from underground streams, creating a unique and grand appearance to the waterfall.
