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.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes or poking around the site to view ads is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
