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.

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. 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 is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
