Most water enthusiasts have a preference for a specific aquatic entity. The strong call of a cresting wave or the story of a green river winding. Even if waterfalls have never made it to the top of your water-body list, you might be willing to leave all others behind when you see this one. Burney Falls is neither the biggest nor widest waterfall (although its 129-foot drop is nothing to scoff at), but there’s something other worldly about the streams of tiered water, as delicate as lace, that texture mossy patterns over the soft face of stone.
Burney Falls is just one of the highlights awaiting you at McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park, an 875-acre wonderland, rich with wildlife, hardwood and conifer dominated trails and the kayaking, swimming, canoeing, stand-up paddle boarding, windsurfing smorgasbord to be feasted upon at Lake Britton.
Detour there or back and explore the volcanic legacy scenic byway , for a new appreciation of land’s changing face.
In the winter, get rustic with a cabin retreat and marvel at the chiseled ice masterpiece of a frozen waterfall.
