Jonesville Outdoor Adventurer Hiking Trails

Jonesville Canyon Trail

The Jonesville Canyon trail takes you near the head­wa­ters of Butte Creek. Even though it’s one of the low­est ele­va­tion High Coun­try hikes in Butte Coun­ty, you’ll still get the ben­e­fits of a cool­er sum­mer hike com­pared to the heat in the Val­ley below. You’ll enjoy wild­flower blooms lat­er into the sum­mer up here, start­ing in June and peak­ing in July, and spec­tac­u­lar falls col­ors in Octo­ber. The access road is closed due to snow annu­al­ly, so make sure to plan your vis­it accordingly.
