I stayed in Redding and made the hour drive to the falls. Worth it. Nice drive. Short walk to the falls. Bring cash for parking.

The falls are amazing, with their layered geology and springs in addition to the creek-based falls. We hope you come back often! McArthur Burney Falls Interpretive Association

We took my 80 year old parents here to see the Falls. We were not sure about the trail down, but found it easy with a good rail. The Falls are incredible. We went in March and the park was not busy at all.

I have recently spent time in Burney hiking the trails. The state park is amazing and worth the trip to see the falls. Take a sack lunch and enjoy the surroundings.
