#36 Hike to the 6th Highest Waterfalls in U.S.A.

feather-falls

To view this magnificent 640 foot waterfall, you’ll need about four hours of time since it’s a seven-mile, round-trip hike, but we bet you’ll remember the breathtaking view for months to come.

Markers appear every half mile to show distance traveled, and hikers are cautioned to take along plenty of drinking water and to wear adequate footwear for the hike.

There are two trails—a moderate and a strenuous one. Both feature magnificent scenery. Many enjoy taking a picnic lunch to enjoy leisurely.

Be cautioned that on the strenuous trail, the last mile on the way back to the trailhead is uphill, so allow plenty of time to complete the hike before dark.

#41 It’s the Berries!

Berry Creek is a small foothill community 18 miles east of Oroville named for Henry Berry, an early pioneer settler, but the wild blackberries growing throughout the area have put Berry Creek on the map.

Berry Creek hospitality ranges from a famous bed and breakfast, 2 stores, 3 churches, 1 gas station, a real western saloon, a post office and a school to an annual Berry Festival which takes place on the second Saturday in August.

The Festival, which started more than ten years ago as a community activity, now brings visitors from all over the state.
