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.
If you’re looking to extend your walk, cross Table Mountain Blvd. for a visit to the Feather River Nature Center & Native Plant Park, or cross the old Table Mountain Bridge and explore the unique views at the Feather River Fish Hatchery.
From Chico, follow CA-70S and take Exit 47 toward Montgomery Street. Turn Right and follow until the road ends at Riverbend Park.
