My dog loved this walk around the lake!

easy trails beautiful fall

Burney Falls is amazing, the trails around it decent. There is a parking lot on Lake Road which is a five minute walk up a paved slope, so the falls are easily accessible, though there are a few stairs. We parked at the parking lot off of Clark Creek Road which gave us a ten minute hike through some of the surrounding forest before reaching the lake road parking lot and down to the base of the falls. The hiking around the surrounding area is decent- but you’re really here for the falls. Since it is on the more accessible end of Oregon waterfalls, expect to see a lot of people.

Nice trail

Great acclimation hike mostly in shade with great views of Mt. Shasta.

Must see trail for NorCal.

Great trail!

Never actually found the trail. Signage in the Bunny Flat area is really poor. We ended up on one of the climber routes headed to the summit and after a couple miles figured out we were way off track. But the climber route was pretty nice (although very steep in spots).

Very dry, dusty hike on a wide, dirt road with limited views of Shasta or anything else. Not recommended. There’s much better hiking nearby.

Nice views in few parts of the hike. Doing the entire loop is kind of boring. Great views of Mt Shasta in a few parts.

I was excited about this new trail that parallels the road, winding through forest, but quickly realized there are much nicer hikes through this area. The hike is sort of dusty and rough at this point; about 1.5 miles in I decided to head back to the car and up to Old Ski Bowl to do one of the hikes up there (Panther Meadows and/or Southgate Meadows - grey butte is also nice), which are much nicer.

Excellent hike easy some of the path is paved. The park was beyond very busy and they had a line of cars out on 89 just to get in. We took Clark Creek road from 89 and found a dirt parking lot that was less than full and provided easy access to the trail. You can walk in about 1000 feet and the trail splits go either direction to access the park.

Easy hike, pretty falls

This is a great little day hangout. The falls are so beautiful and you can hear and see them the moment you arrive. There’s an opportunity to “hike” around the falls. Very short, but worth the stroll. Multiple trails, including PCT, if you’re looking for something more lengthy/difficult. Very touristy, lots of people, but a must see!

Very nice scenery one of the best Falls in California.

Amazing waterfall.

We enjoyed this short hike and it is an easy loop for those looking for an outing and a bit of exercise. Beautiful falls to enjoy close to the parking lot.

Amazing view

Easy hike even with kids. Don’t let the steep downhill walk discourage you from going to the bottom of the Falls. Beautiful views and breathtaking photo opportunities. The Falls loop is easy enough for small children but keel them close as you climb the steep hill on the other side of the Falls. Several spots are straight down. Several resting spots along the way for those who wish to rest. Great hike for the experience hiker or just someone wishing to view nature.

Lovely views and little development. The trail is easy to follow yet offers several short spurs down closer to the water. Great walk if you’re looking to avoid elevation!

Gorgeous waterfall and an easy hike around the loop. Walk the creek and look for trout, watch people fishing at the falls, see the falls from below and above. Pay $8 entrance fee/car. Worth it to see the falls. We went early in morning (10a) before parking lot filled up. By the time we left (11a) lots of people were just showing up.

Great hike. I followed the directions below this post which were very helpful. when driving look for castle lake and turn left. On the trail make sure you go about a quarter mile past the ruins and go left.

Fantastic trail! Great views, well maintained. Bridges installed today, though not in time for me; had to wade across while trail crew was working on bridge installation.
