Hike the Many Waterfalls Cross-Country Loop
Oroville Outdoor Adventurer

Phantom Falls may be the most well-known waterfall at Table Mountain, but there are more waterfalls that that one on the ecological reserve! In fact, during the rainy season, the Many Waterfalls Cross-Country hike will have at least nine waterfalls, with up to 14 flowing within a few days of a major rainstorm. However, their beauty is fleeting--the major ones, including Phantom Falls and Beatson Falls, flow from the first storms in the winter through about April, while others only flow a few days after the big storms. All of them are dry throughout the summer. If you are lucky and go on a hike after a big rainstorm in March, all the falls will be running and there will be millions of wildflowers carpeting the rocky flats.

Overall, this loop makes for a great location for viewing multiple Northern California waterfalls—all in one spot if you time your trip right.
