BURNEY TO MCCLOUD – WHAT TO EXPECT
The Waterfalls Region of McCloud and Burney offers a drive filled with gorgeous pines, quiet surroundings, fishing, and beautiful waterfalls.
Burney is home to the famous McArthur-Burney Falls State Park and a magnificent water that President Theodore Roosevelt called “the eighth wonder of the world.”
An hour to the west of Burney Falls is the charming town of McCloud and stunning McCloud Falls – a series of three distinct waterfalls that are linked by a hiking trail or scenic drive. Rich in History, McCloud is a great overnight, catering to visitors with everything from luxury accommodations and great dining options to outdoor gear rentals and picnicking. It also provides great access to the Mt. Shasta Ski Park, Shastice Park (open air ice-skating) and the Nordic Ski Park in the winter.
From McCloud or Burney, visitors can also enjoy the Great Shasta Rail Trail – a red cinder trail now open to all non-motorized activities (biking, running, walking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and equestrian) that was once the train line that connected McCloud to Burney. Along the Trail, pay a visit to Lake Britton and the trestle bridge made famous by the film “Stand By Me.”
