Located in the southern Cascade mountains between Mount Shasta to the north and Mt Lassen to the south lies the beautiful Fall River Valley. The area is home to abundant wildlife, produces diverse agricultural products, has countless recreational opportunities and supports a community that offers small town comforts.
Fishing is world famous in the lakes and rivers in the area, presidents and movies stars have been known to cast a line here. The area is also a flyover for numerous species of waterfowl. Outdoor enthusiasts will find many undiscovered treasures to explore in this valley.
The soil is rich and water plentiful, providing for a thriving agricultural community. We are known for our "Fall River Wild Rice", a grower-owned cooperative, as well as for the cattle, hay, strawberry plants and mint produced here.
We have very comfy lodges and motels, a good choice of restaurants, equestrian and rodeo events, a Clark Glasson designed and built golf course, the Fort Crook Museum, white water rafting, artists and galleries. Seasonal events include a Christmas parade of lights, pioneer demonstrations, bike rides, golf tournaments, food festivals and the famous Intermountain Fair.
There are several state parks in the area including McArthur - Burney Falls Memorial State Park which has a 129 ft high spring fed waterfall that flows into Lake Britton. Camping, boating and water recreation are popular activities at Lake Britton.
Ahjumawi Lava Springs State Park, located north of McArthur is unique in that it is accessible only by water. The waters which come together are Big Lake, Tule River, Ja-She Creek, Lava Creek and Fall River. Together they form one of the largest systems of fresh water springs in the country. The area is rugged and home to many species of wildlife year round.
The Pacific Crest Trail crosses many back roads in the area as it passes through Lassen Volcanic National Park, overseen by Lassen Peak (elev. 10,457'). North of the park the PCT follows the Hat Creek Rim toward Mt. Shasta (elev. 14,179'), which defines the north-state skyline.
Surrounded by mountains the Fall River Valley is home to friendly people, wildlife, wildflowers and wild rivers. Fall River Real Estate welcomes visitors to sample some of the unique opportunities for entertainment, recreation and relaxation in an area that showcases the best of Northern California.
