Former U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt named the Burney Falls as the “eighth wonder of the world.” And we don’t have to wonder why. Although it doesn’t hold any record of being the tallest or largest waterfalls in California, it’s arguably the most picturesque. A brief hike that even beginners won’t have trouble with would take you to the base of the waterfalls, where the views are also captivating. There are many outdoor activities that you can enjoy while you’re in the area. These include camping, picnicking, trekking, hiking, fishing, swimming, boating and wildlife viewing. It’s a great place to travel with family and friends.
