Recommended route is to take the upper trail to the falls and the lower trail back to the trail head.

The Feather Falls Scenic Area, which encompasses 15,000 acres in the Plumas National Forest, includes numerous hiking trails and campgrounds.

Get Your Butte in Gear
With more public lands than a DogTrekker could explore in a lifetime, Butte County is a great place for an outdoorsy getaway with your canine companion. The surprises start in the county seat of Chico, home to Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, a California State University campus and Bidwell Park, at 3,618 acres, one of the largest municipal parks in the country. While the developed Lower Park is home to playing fields, a nature center, a theater and other community facilities, the rougher, untamed Upper Park offers 70 miles of hiking trails and open areas where it's legal to let Fido romp off leash so long as he comes when you call. more »
