Theodore Roosevelt referred to these falls as the “eighth wonder of the world.

Although the falls can be seen right from the parking area, this scenic 1.3 mile loop is a great hike for all levels of hiking ability. Heading out on this trail will take you to the base of this 129 foot tall waterfall. Allegedly, Theodore Roosevelt referred to these falls as the “eighth wonder of the world”.

Looking for an overview of the camping and trail areas, take a look at the park map. From the side bar of the Burney Falls State Park page, you can make cabin or campground reservations if you'd like to make an overnight trip.

Magnificent

One of the most peaceful places I've been with lots of nice views and more

Great For A Family Hike

Hike was beautiful, views of the falls and burney creek that was just pristine. Easy hike for all my family ( kids 2-13) and the honey. We were bummed no dogs allowed But there are some steep edges that could be a risk if you had hikers and dogs on leash. Quite a few people enjoying the falls and trail but never felt crowded and we were able to take amazing pictures like we were there alone.

Burned Falls

Fun easy hike. The water is refreshing in the summer and beautiful in the fall and spring.
