America's Scenic Byways

Feather River Scenic Byway

130 miles - Three hours

Climbing over the Sierra's crest and through Beckwourth Pass to the east, the Feather River Scenic Byway offers memorable sights such as waterfalls, gigantic rock outcroppings, forested slopes, and delicate meadows.

This U.S. Forest Service Scenic Byway traverses steep canyon walls and high mountain valleys, past grasslands, oak woodlands, mixed conifer, and high desert chaparral.

Covered bridges and railroad history make this byway particularly interesting. Wintertime offers fantastic skiing and snowmobiling opportunities.
