The falls can be accessed directly from the parking area or through several trails leading to either side, upper or lower views of the endless cascade of descending water. 

The lake is formed by a hydroelectric dam and is filled by the Pit River, Cayton Creek, Clark Creek, Hat Creek, and Burney Creek.  It sports a wide variety of bass and trout.
