|The park is within the
Cascade Range and Modoc Plateau natural region, with 910 acres of
forest and five miles of streamside and lake shoreline, including a
portion of Lake Britton. The park's centerpiece is the 129-foot
Burney Falls, which is not the highest or largest waterfall in the
state, but possibly the most beautiful. Additional water comes from
springs, joining to create a mist-filled basin. Burney Creek
originates from the park's underground springs and flows to Lake
Britton, getting larger along the way to the majestic falls.
