Feather Falls

Named the best waterfall in California outside of Yosemite, Feather Falls is a moderately steep hike leading to one of the largest waterfalls in the U.S. Along the five-mile trail to the falls, hikers and mountain bikers can take in the beauty of Bald Rock Dome. Once at the top, check out the falls from a large lookout, or hike another half mile behind the falls to swimming holes.
