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.

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

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
