Oroville Outdoor Adventurer Hiking Trails State & Regional Parks

Dan Beebe Trail

Start­ing at Sad­dle Dam at Lake Oroville and mean­der­ing up Kel­ly Ridge and past the Lake Oroville Vis­i­tors Cen­ter, the Dan Beebe Trail takes you on a scenic jour­ney past Oroville Dam down to the Lake­land Trail­head near Down­town Oroville. The eques­tri­an-acces­si­ble trail fea­tures lake and riv­er views, beau­ti­ful spring green­ery, and nice views from the top of Sycamore Hill. You’ll want to set up a shut­tle to drop you off at the start and pick you up at the end.

Mod­i­fi­ca­tion: If you’re not quite ready to tack­le all 12 miles at once, start at the Oroville Dam Upper Over­look Day Use Area to either head east to Sad­dle Dam for a rough­ly 5‑mile hike or head west to the Lake­land Trail­head for a 7‑mile adventure.
