Pit River Falls is on the Pit River 2 miles west of Fall River Mills and not accessable by road. However there is a viewing area off of Hwy 299 with a distant view of the falls and canyon that it is in. The bridge in front of the falls has not been used in many years. In the early 20th century, it was the only road through the hills to Burney (with access to Redding)from Fall River Mills. The road has been replace many years ago and now is mostly covered with land slides.
