McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park
After McCloud Falls it's on to McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park. The 129-foot Burney Falls is more magnificent in person than in the photos, and it flows from underground springs at a rate of 100 million gallons per day - ALL YEAR LONG. The hike down to the falls is short and easy with a paved path. If you wish to hike around the falls, there is a 1.5-mile loop that takes you on part of the famed Pacific Crest Trail and up to the top of the falls across the creek.
Lion Slide Falls
Your last stop is Lion Slide Falls. Hit CA Highway 299-E toward Burney. In about 40 miles you’ll get to a road called Big Bend. Take a left and drive about 1.5 miles until you see the pull off for the falls on the right side of the road just before the bridge over Hatchet Creek. The hike up to the falls is short, with moderate difficulty, and is worth the stop.
