McArthur-Burney Falls State Park is located about one hour north of Lassen Volcanic National Park, or about a half an hour north of Hat Creek. A short walk from the parking lot takes you to to a paved trail that zigzags down the side of a gorge to the bottom of the falls. From the bottom, you can take the trail downstream, cross a bridge, and go up the other side of the gorge, and up to the creek feeding the falls. Another bridge crosses the creek, and the trail takes you back to the parking lot. The whole loop trail is about a mile and takes an hour or so to walk.
