Jonesville Canyon
Jonesville Outdoor Adventurer

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.
