Fall River Valley features spectacular views of Mount Shasta, Lassen Peak, and the surrounding Cascade Range. It is also in a transition zone high in ecological and topographic diversity. Fall River Mills and McArthur are the valley's major communities.

Fall River Valley is a great staging location for a variety of outdoor recreation that can take place at nearby forests, mountains, lakes, rivers, and lava beds. Fall River Valley provides access to Big Lake, Ahjumawi Lava Springs State Park, national forest, BLM land, and the Timbered Crater Wilderness Study Area. Quick road trips can also take you to places like McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park, Lassen Volcanic National Park, or Ash Creek Wildlife Area. The world-class trout fishing streams of Fall River and Hat Creek are also in the area.

To add a dash of local culture to your outdoor adventures, visit the Fall River Valley Golf and Country Club, which has a 4-star rating from Golf Digest and occasionally hosts celebrities. You could also visit the Inter-Mountain Fairgrounds, which annually host a Labor Day weekend fair featuring staples of rural Americana, including: a rodeo, carnival, livestock exhibitions, musical performances, and competitions for baking, flowers, garden vegetables, etc.

If you decide to make the Fall River Valley area the location of your home, let DHB build that home in a way that fits your preferences, needs, and budget.
