Love this trail! Overall fairly challenging. You’ll work up a bit of a sweat during the steep parts before making it to the outlook by the gorgeous waterfall. Be prepared for some extra weight if you have children with you. We brought along a 3 yr. old, which made for a long trek up to the waterfall, but she was a trooper and did surprisingly well! The way back down though, she was pretty wiped and we had to take turns carrying her for more than half of the trail. Would definitely do it again.

Beautiful trail but make sure you’re prepared!

Great hike. Plan well, though. Lots of water or a water filter and snacks. Once you start you'll come to a fork. The lower trail is harder with more changes in elevation and more rocky obstacles where the top trail still has some but not as much. About 3 miles in (we started on the lower trail) you come to a wooden sign that says falls. Follow it, obviously...lol you're about 0.5miles to your destination. At that sign the other trail is the other way out. Towards the end there's a railing. If you look to the right just as the railing turns and takes you to the left there's an unmarked but obvious trail up to the top of the water falls. It's about .25 mile but so worth it!

A Jere's Jaunts hike. My brother and I set a good pace but Marty blew our doors off. I think he believes all hikes are a workout/competition. Lots of switchbacks on this trail but a good mix of scenery and the falls itself is really nice, one of the larger in our area.

Excellent hike! Fairly level with some up-and downs on the upper trail, more significant elevation changes on the lower. Lots of mosquitoes, so bring bug spray! Outlook point at the end is 100% worth it, bring a lunch and enjoy it at the end with a great view.

Feather Falls is beautiful, sacred and majestic. The trail has spectacular views. Truly a spiritual journey.

This was a pretty hike and not that long.. the water fall was dry at this time of the year but there was still a little running water! Still a great trail with many pretty wild flowers

Beautiful trail.

This was a very confusing yet beautiful hike the flowers were so pretty but the trail
Was not marked or maintained at all we just kinda keep going with what we thought was a trail until we came across the waterfall

Beautiful hike. Would recommend taking the left fork going in and the opposite side of the loop out for an easier route. Bring lots of bug spray for yourself and your dogs. There's a good amount of shade throughout the hike.

Right on! This is my favorite so far.

Poor trail markers but excellent hike.

The geology is stunning once you reach the canyon! Wildflowers are at the tail of their bloom and Phantom Falls doesn't have much flow, but still beautiful and worth the hike. The trail is not well marked though and ran into many people trying to find their way to Phantom falls.

Love this hike gorgeous gorgeous waterfall worth the hike in. Lots of mosquitos today glad we took repellant. Always lots of friendly families with kids and dogs. This is a great family hike.

Love this hike. The view is great, we went in January. I recommend the extended hike pass the overlook to get to the top of the waterfall. There were a few downed trees that we had to go over or under, along the path. I’ve done the lower trail back and forth as well as the upper trail back and forth. Lower has more streams and shade. Upper has a nice small waterfall.. we did not run into any bugs during January but I have heard that gnats can be a issue during later months as well as mosquitoes.

Very beautiful. We did this hike on 4/13/2018, Parking lot to Hollow falls, then across to Ravine falls, then Phantom falls then down to the pools about 1/2 mile past phantom in Flag Canyon.
The flowers were out in full bloom and it was beautiful. I returned to view again on 4/19/2018.

Got out there before the crowds hit but I definitely wasn’t expecting that many people. Got a bit crowded on the way out. Fun little adventure. I went off trail and explored a bit. It was good but a one and done for me. Not that spectacular.

great hike, awesome waterfall.

Very crowded. Overall it was a nice walk, easy for kids. Nice waterfall and wild flowers along the way.

Great trail hike the views are worth the hike. start to the trail on the left all down hill great photo ops, and on the way out go left nice easy gradual hike back out.

The whole place was a muddy over hyped cow pasture.

Solid. You can make it tomorrow steep or easy and either way you see the falls and the top of the river.

Wildflowers galore and many wispy waterfalls along this easy hike. On weekends in the spring, it is crowded. The sheer quantity of flowers is worth it though.

Beautiful place to hike and see Gods creation. about 8 miles of trail. easier and longer by 1/2 mile way to go on the right but shorter and steeper on the way is on the left. recomend this hike if you will be in that area of Oroville.

The trail is absolutely gorgeous. Lot's of green area, many watefalls that are stunning.

Great short trail to this waterfall with some crowd even on a Monday! Water is running nicely this time of the year with beautiful wildflowers.

Beautiful wildflowers blooming this time of the year (April). A friend suggested to stay on the right side instead of the trail, which was horribly mark. We still manage to get lost and found the waterfalls. However, we still didn’t see phantom falls but saw 3 waterfalls... But overall, it was a great time. We were able to enjoy the waterfall and have a picnic. I would suggest sunscreen, a hat and shoes that can get muddy!
