Majestic! these are the most beautiful waterfalls I have ever seen. we drove 2 1/2 hours and it was well worth it. we arrived at 11:30 and there were not many people there, however, when we left at 3:30 it was very full. we also did the extra 1.5 miles to the lake but we're very disappointed as it was very nasty looking. we walked back to the falls to cool down and then headed home. next time we will take the falls trail loop and see what it has to offer.

Beautiful and well worth the drive, 4 stars for hardly being dog friendly.

The walk down n to the Falls is steap, but short and easy. On your way down you will have several vantage points. If you want to get crazy with it, scaling the steap trails to get the the base of the water is common. A few people were seen doing so. Otherwise the trail gives you at least 4 good vantage points, to see the waterfalls from. I've never seen anything quite like it. It's majestic.

Nice easy trail into Lake Britton with several fishing spots along the creek (two trout limit with required barbless hooks). The trail loops back into Burney Falls SP along the Rim Trail.
