Feather River Canyon and Scenic Byway

This Scenic Byway begins just north of Oroville and winds through the magnificent Feather River Canyon. You'll see bridges and covered railroad tunnels and PG&E powerhouses. There are numerous trailheads along the route and many creeks spill into the Feather River, some with excellent trout fishing. Highway 89, another portion of this Scenic Byway, goes through Blairsden/Graeagle. New this year, a paved alternate route creates a loop tour opportunity. This Byway is part of the National Forest Scenic Byway Program and it is sponsored by the Plumas National Forest. The Feather River Scenic Byway winds through portions of Butte County, Lassen County, and Plumas County. Plan a trip along this route and discover all the attractions and services in the communities along the way.
