Phantom Falls, aka Coal Canyon Falls, on North Table Mountain in Oroville is well named for two good reasons. First, it is on a small drainage, and will be dry in the summer months. Second, it is extremely well hidden, and there are no trails leading to it. But if you do find Phantom Falls, it is a beauty, dropping off a 166 ft. cliff. The view of Phantom Falls and Coal Canyon is spectacular, but it is best to come here in the winter months, after a lot of rain. But it is also well worth coming in the spring when the wildflowers on Table Mountain are out (and hopefully after some rain as well, so the falls will be flowing nicely).
