Burney Falls *August 2010

The trails of McArthur-Burney Falls have been going through some major repair work for months now. According to their Visitor's Guide handed out at the park entrance, the repair project may extend into next year. This construction should improve the trail conditions to a smoother and safer pathway to the falls. But despite the construction, it's still worth the visit (and $8 State Park fee) because you can still go down to the falls through a detour.

The Falls Loop Trail is a nice hike in the woods along Burney Creek.

Summer is the time to enjoy this lush foliage.

The water fall during this time of the year still has its abundant water from two outlets, but more water seems to be flowing out the slopes around it. The showering slopes almost resemble the Mossbrea Falls.

The detour starts from the trail head that also leads to the headwaters of Burney Falls. The water here looks completely still in contrast to the dynamic water movement at the falls. Make an extra detour when you come visit the McArthur-Burney Falls this year.
