Water Source

The Feather Falls Trail in Plumas National Forest near Oroville, California is a moderate 7.3-mile loop trail that features beautiful views of Feather Falls - a 400+ foot waterfall.

Feather Falls is one of California's best waterfalls, outside of Yosemite. In the Spring, the waterfall roars approximately 410-feet downstream toward Lake Oroville. The waterfall can be visited year-round, but the hike to reach the waterfall is not short. The hike is just over 7-miles if you complete the loop. If you hike this out-and-back, you can make a similar distance without having to hike the entire loop as well.

The trail also includes beautiful vistas from the mountainside looking down stream.
