It is a spectacular waterfall, plunging 410 ft. along the Fall River. Feather Falls flows year-round, but is most impressive in April, when the snow is melting. Outside of Yosemite, this is one of the best waterfalls in California.
The Feather Falls hike is very popular. Feather Falls is a loop hike, the upper loop is 4.5 miles and the lower one 3.5 miles. Suggestion: Take the longer 4.5 mile loop to the falls (which is mostly all downhill), and the shorter 3.5 mile loop on the return.
