McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park

McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park. The park is northeast of Redding on Highway 89 near Burney. You have Mt. Shasta one way and Lassen Peak the other way with the park in the middle. This park is a little off the beaten track and probably may never have visited until someone recommended that we check it out.

We visited the park to camp, hike and see the falls. The falls are gorgeous and the color of the water is so blue. The falls are unique in that the water emerges as springs (underground aquifers) at and above the falls where it flows at millions of gallons every day – pretty impressive!

Take the Falls Trail to get more up close and personal with the falls. Do not need to be an avid hiker to do this trail. On a hot day the mist from the falls is so refreshing.

The park includes access to Lake Britton – more of a fishing and boating than a swimming lake.

On our way back home we stopped to check out the Subway Cave. Basically a lava tube that has an uneven ceiling and floor. There is no tour and no lighting – go at your own risk with adequate lighting. I learned that dark, uneven spaces is not my thing.
