Plan Your Trip

Butte County is the thundering of 410-foot Feather Falls and a sip of Sierra Nevada brew straight from the source. It is the mystical hanging cascades at Phantom Falls and the buttery taste of olive oil from 100-year-old trees. It is mountain biking through wildflowers and waterskiing one of California’s most expansive reservoirs.
