Feather Falls



The water falls 640 feet down as the Feather River makes its way down the canyons into the valley below. Feather Falls, the sixth highest waterfall in the U.S., is one of the most magnificent attractions in Butte County.

From Oroville, take Olive Highway east to Forbestown Road, then go north on Lumpkin Road. For the best view of the falls, plan a day hike into the area. The hike is 7 miles round trip with half-mile markers along the trail. The trail has several steep grades and a minimum of 4 hours is needed to complete the hike.
