Burney Falls Travel Guide | McArthur Burney Falls State Park | California Travel Tips
Veronica Hill visits McArthur Burney Falls State Park in this episode of California Travel Tips.
This beautiful evergreen forest, located just north of Redding between Lassen Peak and Mt. Shasta in California's lava country, is famous for its 129-foot waterfall, which cascades from Burney Creek down into Lake Britton. Burney Falls are a sacred place for the Pit River Indian Tribe, who have held ceremonial rituals here for thousands of years.
President Theodor Roosevelt called these falls one of the wonders of the world. The year-round falls are formed by melting snow from Burney Mountain, which travels through underground streams before hitting solid rock and flowing back to the surface. Each day, more than 100 million gallons of water plunge over the falls.
While you're at Burney Falls, don't miss the Falls Loop Trail, which is a 1-mile hike to the base of the falls and back up. During the walk, you'll see lava flows and fractured basalt — evidence of the region's turbulent volcanic activity. After descending 100 feet into Burney Canyon, we're rewarded with a cool mist at the base of the falls.
The 20-foot pool is quite popular with fishermen, who regularly pull in rainbow, brook and brown trout. Only artificial lures with barbless hooks are allowed, and the season runs from late April through Nov. 15. Swimming is discouraged in the pool, which maintains a chilly 48 degrees.
As the trail continues uphill, you'll reach the top of the falls and circle back to the visitor center. The cliffs at the edge of the falls are unstable, so be sure to stay behind the fence!
If you want to stay the night, Burney Falls State Park has an excellent campground, with 128 sites, flush restrooms and showers. You can also book one of their 1- or 2-bedroom cabins, which are equipped with fire rings, propane heaters, picnic tables and bunk beds. Just note that there is no electricity, so bring along lanterns and your own bedding. At the Burney Falls General Store, you can stock up on grocery items, souvenirs and snacks.
During your stay, you can rent a canoe, paddle or rowboat for a day on Lake Britton, or head into Lassen Volcanic National Park. The McArthur Burney Falls park Heritage Day is held annually on Columbus Day in October.
After visiting Burney Falls, be sure to pull into Dusty Campground for a peek at the bridge from Stand By Me.

BURNEY FALLS, CALIFORNIA.
Burney Falls is a waterfall on Burney Creek, within McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park, in Shasta County, California.
McArthur-Burney Falls, Northern California
My wife and I were at McArthur-Burney Falls in Northern California yesterday. I have lived in California since 1960, and my wife has lived here since 1953, well, all her life (yeah, I can see you all doing the math.) But neither of us had ever been there before. It's the most unique waterfall I have ever seen. With the drought in California I had expected to be underwhelmed, but the water in Burney Creek comes from underground springs, so the faucet is always running. While the main two branches of the falls are impressive (they fall over the cliff face just like any other waterfall), the fascinating sight is the waterfalls that emerge right out of the cliff face. Very cool. I didn't think still shots captured the beauty of the falls, so I took some video clips and merged them together. I was going to add some music to the background, but then I realized that the music was already supplied.

Burney Falls, California
McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park is located within the Cascade Range and Modoc Plateau natural region with forest and five miles of streamside and lake shoreline, including a portion of Lake Britton.
Music: Mariza, Minh 'Alma, My Soul
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. Additional water comes from springs, joining to create a mist-filled basin. Burney Creek originates from the park's underground springs and flows to Lake Britton, getting larger along the way to the majestic falls.
The park's landscape was created by volcanic activity as well as erosion from weather and streams. This volcanic region is surrounded by mountain peaks and is covered by black volcanic rock, or basalt. Created over a million years ago, the layered, porous basalt retains rainwater and snow melt, which forms a large underground reservoir.
Teddy Roosevelt once described Burney Falls as the eighth wonder of the world. Great views of the falls are accessible right from the parking lot, while a short easy hike takes you to the base. A 1.3 mile trail circles the falls.
Within the park, the water emerges as springs at and above Burney Falls, where it flows at 100 million gallons every day.
Burney Falls was named after pioneer settler Samuel Burney who lived in the area in the 1850s. The McArthurs were pioneer settlers who arrived in the late 1800s. Descendants were responsible for saving the waterfall and nearby land from development. They bought the property and gave it to the state as a gift in the 1920s.
The park is northeast of Redding, six miles north of Highway 299 on Highway 89 near Burney.
