Thanks for a great rating and review. It is crowded in the summer and holidays. Come back in the fall or spring when the Park is more peaceful! McArthur Burney Falls Interpretive Association

We always recommend Burney Falls when friends come to visit. It's a very safe trail, one that children can navigate pretty easily. And there's so much to see. They installed guard rails some years ago to make it even more safe. Great place for a...More

Stopped in for a picnic and then a quick walk to the falls, where temperatures were significantly cooler. The volunteers staffing the visitor center were very informative. I can see why Teddy Roosevelt called it the 8th wonder of the world

These falls are lovely. It's a great place to stop between Reno and Highway 5 when headed for Oregon. Just bring a lunch. The falls are spectacular. The walk down is a bit steep, but not long and totally worth it. There are some calm...More

Thank you for your response. The base of the falls are a nice place to be indeed! No swimming in that pool because of the water temperature and the power of the falls, but great for dipping your feet.

We took the 1/1/2 mile loop hike around the falls and we loved it . The falls are spectacular and the hike was easy.

Very short walk from the car to the falls. I’d suggest wearing athletic shoes do the short walk. You can also go do a small incline and go onto the rocks surrounding the falls/ pool. No swimming is posted due to the danger of the...More

Yes it’s been extremely Smokey. Today was the first day in a long time that we had blue skies and the sun shining after 12 noon.
