Frazier Falls – an easy hike with a big reward
Frazier Falls is located just above Grayeagle, California and is about 6200 feet in elevation. The 1.4 mile round trip hike is both easy and quite scenic. This area experiences heavy snowfall in the winter, the melt-off flows from the Lakes Basin into Frazier Creek on its descent more than 2,000 feet to the Middle Fork of the Feather River. Frazier Falls has an overall cascade of 248 feet with a waterfall of 176 feet, making it one of the highest in California.
The trail-head has room for several cars and you’ll find a few picnic tables and a restroom. The trail winds through the forest with huge granite boulders scattered throughout. Nearly half way to the falls you’ll come across a wooden bridge that crosses Frazier Creek, which is a nice place to take-in the surrounding beauty. The trail continues straight, but taking a left here and hugging the left bank of the creek will bring you out to Frazier Falls in about two hundred yards.
