Feather River Trail

Run­ning along the riv­er that gives it its name, the Feath­er Riv­er Trail starts at River­bend Park and mean­ders east upstream (right from the soc­cer fields) to Table Moun­tain Blvd. The paved trail and mul­ti­ple access points make it a pop­u­lar spot for walk­ers, bik­ers, fam­i­lies, those who use wheel­chairs, and those with dogs. Use one of those access points to get to the top of the lev­ee along Arlin Rhine Memo­r­i­al Dr. to see some of the city’s most pop­u­lar spots, includ­ing the Oroville Chi­nese Tem­ple and Cen­ten­ni­al Plaza. Back on the trail, you can see spawn­ing bass and salmon in the spring and fall, wad­ing fish­ers in the win­ter, and, at the end of the trail, a great view of the his­toric Table Moun­tain bridge any time of year.

Mod­i­fi­ca­tion: If you’re look­ing to extend your walk, cross Table Moun­tain Blvd. for a vis­it to the Feath­er Riv­er Nature Cen­ter, or cross the old Table Moun­tain Bridge and explore the unique views at the Feath­er Riv­er Fish Hatch­ery.
