A United States National Forest located in Sierra Nevada, the Plumas National Forest is a 1,140,000 acre land with almost 85% of it lying in Plumas County. The Feather Falls National Recreational Trail, meanwhile, offers stellar view of the Bald Rock Dome, Bald Rock Canyon, as well as the majestic 640 foot Feather Falls. There are two options to reach the overlook at Feather Falls: one for the experience hiker and the other for the inexperienced one.

There are restrooms and non-potable water are available at the trailhead but it is important to bring water or a water purifier for the hike. Moreover, poison oak, ticks, bears, and other wildlife are common in the area so it is best to be prepared. A first aid kit is essential.



Top 3 Adventure Hacks

1) Stay hydrated

You sweat about half to one quart of fluid for every hour you walk in the heat – and around 3 quarts if you walk uphill. Thus it is important to stay hydrated.

2) Filter your water before drinking

Non potable water is available at the trailhead but must be boiled or filtered prior drinking. A water filter or purifier is a must-have for this hike.

3) Stay fueled Kirkland Brand Trail Mix

Bring food with you that will give you energy – energy bar, trail mix, beef jerky, and high sugar snacks.
