The hike to Burnett Falls is a short, uphill route that ends at a spectacular view of the waterfall across the canyon. The hike is generally accessed year-round and the waterfall is best viewed during the winter and spring when there is more runoff flowing down the creek.
Starting at the trail next to the metal gate, begin hiking uphill as you pass through an area that was recently logged. Just after passing a picnic table on the left, the trail veers to the right and enters the forest, following a much more scenic route.
The path begins to climb at a steeper pace as you can hear the rushing water down, to your right. There is a wooden bench conveniently located part way up the hill to stop and also peer down into the canyon below.
Continue following the path and within a few minutes, you reach the end where another wooden bench sits in front of a viewpoint of Burnett Falls.
After enjoying the view of the falls, hike back downhill, making your way past the bench and out of the forest, passing the picnic table. Just a few more steps and you will find yourself back at the metal gate where you began.
