Welcome to Plumas County!

It’s Awesome Autumn in Plumas County – and time to witness some of the best fall color in California. Right now  is the time to visit the Feather River Canyon. (Hwy. 70) The colors should last another week or more, depending on elevation.

It’s a stunning show that Mother Nature provides in the Northern Sierra, from streambed to mountaintop. Bright hues of orange, red and yellow contrast against dark green conifers, gray granite and blue skies. Check the daily leaf-peeper reports to take in the best foliage-viewing routes, and to find where color’s happening.

Looking for Christmas Tree Permits? You can begin cutting your own Christmas tree now in both the Lassen National Forest and the Plumas National Forest.

Autumn brings on a cooler, more tranquil season for venturing outdoors. Hear the leaves scrunch underfoot along an uncrowded hiking trail. Ride a bike, or head for a golf course or fishing hole.

Small towns celebrate the season with quaint festivals and activities and offer a variety of friendly places to stay and eat. 

Crisp mountain air, a slower pace and dazzling fall color make fall the best season to visit Plumas County!
