The park’s centerpiece is the 129-foot Burney Falls, which is not the highest or largest waterfall in the state, but possibly the most beautiful. The waterfall itself is very wide and has both an upper and middle flow of water. The middle flow is fed by an underground river that runs below the creek above. This is what makes the falls stand out as you see water coming from the top but also out of a dozen holes right in the middle of the falls. Why is this special? The park offers camping, fishing, watersports, hiking, and horseback riding facilities. Wildlife in the park includes bass, trout, Steller's jay, squirrels, woodpeckers, deer, and on rare occasion, black bear. Park has lots of trails, but the primary trail is the Falls Loop Trail (3/4 mile) that begins at the Burney Falls overlook. From there, it descends to the bottom of the falls, proceeds downstream to the Rainbow Footbridge. From there, it crosses Burney Creek and ascends back on the other side of the ravine (providing alternate views of the falls), and finally returning across the creek again via Fisherman’s Bridge.

This was my second visit here, so I'm very lucky! I took my friend here to show her the falls. We went on labor day and there was a crowd of course. The line to get in was a little long. The weather was perfect. It does get really chilly as you approach the falls though. The general store is great! There are plenty of restrooms here, right across from the general store. The visitor's center was closed due to the holiday. The falls are a blessing to see. The loop is only a mile or just over a mile. It's not too long and easy to do, worth it. Just An absolute must see! The standby bridge is just down the road too.
These moments captured are the bliss to loving the one in a new magical land for the both of us . Both with our own visions and personal experiences to share this memory together is abundance. The abundance of new love and new adventures conquering together. Getting here was easy and the walk from the parking lot was super smooth fast short distance . Anyone can come on the pathway super accessible for all . The epic sounds of the waterfall I wish to capture to replay that ! I miss it
I have been coming here for most of my life. Burney falls is a fantastic place! There are hiking trails, lake access, and camping areas. The falls itself is an awesome sight. There is an overlook and then a trail that leads all the way to the bottom. You can get right up to the base of the pool. This is a place to visit for the whole family. The gift shop has plenty of keepsakes and even soft serve ice cream!
What a marvellous spot to visit!! Absolutely loved these falls and it was the star attraction of my Mount Shasta trip. The falls are North facing so from perfect picture point of view, I don't think it makes much difference but mornings are the best time to visit when the sunshine can be on your face in an angle with the falls in the background. I went on a weekday morning around 9 am, still there were atleast 10 people in the area. Luckily I could have some clicks without people in the background. Entree Fee is $10 and you should take the Burney loop trail too to view the river, a cute bridge and the falls from the top.
