Lime Saddle Memorial Park Trail
Oroville Outdoor Adventurer

Located on the northwestern side of Lake Oroville along the West Branch of the Feather River Arm, the Lime Saddle Memorial Park Trail starts from the trailhead near the intersection of Pentz Rd. and Lime Saddle Rec Road and travels north to wrap around the Lime Saddle Campground area and features lake views. Enjoy acres of rolling hills dotted with trees and views of the marinas (and in the Spring, delight in the wildflowers that will be in bloom) in a less-populated hiking area.

Park in the gravel lot at the intersection of Lime Saddle Rec Rd. and Pentz Rd and then walk left, through the chain link fence, to get to the trail.
