Best Hiking Trails in McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park

The true highlight of this well-maintained state park is Burney Falls. The waterfall is created by the cascading waters of Burney Creek falling into a deep blue pool with a 129 feet drop-off. Leaving the pool, the creek meanders past a tree-fringed valley before flowing into a lake. Several hiking trails are marked along this stream with viewpoints offering spectacular views of the waterfall.

  • 1. Falls Loop Trail

    Begin this 3-mile long trail at the Burney Falls Overlook and descend to its foot, moving along the streaming waters until you reach Rainbow Footbridge. Cross Burney Creek from here and trace back along the ravine’s other side, returning across the creek from Fisherman’s Bridge.

  • 2. Burney Creek Trail

    Hike this mile-long trail merging with the Falls Loop Trail at Rainbow Bridge and leading to Lake Britton’s area of swimming and boating. Take this route to witness the magnificence of the park’s coniferous vegetation.

  • 3. Headwaters Trail Loop

    The mile-long Headwaters Trail circuit the Fisherman’s Bridge and lead to Headwaters Spring. The loop circuits back, meeting the Pacific Crest Trail Footbridge at a point before looping back to Fisherman’s Bridge.
