Feather Falls National Scenic Trail offers you an incredible view of Bald Rock dome, Bald Rock Canyon, and the 640 foot waterfall. The trail to the falls forks about a quarter of a mile down the path. The lower trail to the left is shorter at about 3.5 miles, but more difficult due to occasionally steep elevation changes. This trail is primarily downhill to the falls three quarters of the way. The final quarter is primarily uphill. The upper hill trail to the right is about 4.5 miles and makes the trip to the falls much more gradually. The trails join again just before the final three quarters of a mile climb to the Feather Falls overlook.
Allow a minimum of 4 to 5 hours to hike the nine mile loop.
Poison oak is very common along the trail.
Carpooling is highly recommended. This is a 100 mile drive, so allow up to a two hour drive each way, and remember to tip the chauffeur for the ride.
