Feather Falls
Feather Falls National Recreation Trail, Plumas National Forest California


Feather Falls is arguably the most spectacular waterfall in California outside of Yosemite Valley. The snowmelt waters of Fall Creek drop 410 feet almost vertically into a gorge. The only good viewpoint is at the end of the Feather Falls National Recreation Trail, an easy and scenic hike through forest to the canyon rim.
