Feather Falls is on the Fall River, a tributary of the Feather River. This is at the north end of the famous gold country, scene of the great Gold Rush of 1849. The nearest town is Oroville - literally "gold town". It was 107° (41° C) in Oroville the day I went through, but on the eight mile hike to the falls it was pleasantly warm and shaded by thick forest. The forest service has built a sturdy overlook platform, a sheer thousand feet above the gorge, so you don't have to risk your life to get a good view.
