If I hadn't been here myself, I wouldn't believe this place exists in Northern California, let alone just a couple hours from home, but alas--what you're looking at is in Oroville. And its easily one of the most beautiful hikes I've ever done.
Arriving is a bit tricky, but clearly well worth it. There is no specific address to map, however someone has taken the liberty of giving well-detailed directions via All-Trails. Once you're there I highly recommend inputting the GPS coordinates and utilizing a compass to point you in the direction of the falls. As you can see there are a lot of marshy areas and small ravines to cross so it is recommended to wear waterproof trail shoes (we love our Merrell's) or at the very least footwear you don't mind getting wet.
There are also a shit ton (pun intended) of cow pies EVERYWHERE, because cows roam free all over the land. There's also a part of the hike that requires maneuvering under some barbed-wire so be aware and be sure to refine your army crawl prior to attempting this three and a half mile loop.
The views get more scenic the closer you get to the falls. Some areas get steep but that only makes for better views of the surrounding landscape. Here's Ashley imitating her IG namesake. Behold: Treeshley.
Time-permitting, there is an area to which you can switch-back and climb atop a cliff and get a perfect view of both falls. It's a little treacherous and windy but if you can muster the courage it's the best seat in the house.
