County's Awesome Autumn has spectacular fall colors that dazzle
year after year.
Masses of burnished
golds and sunlit yellows flecked with brilliant
reds and rich magentas, set against the majestic
greens of the mountains and the royal blue sky
qualify Plumas County as a must-see destination
for nature lovers and camera buffs during late
September, October and early November.
The season is also a time to take in the crisp mountain air, enjoy a more quiet pace, and join in the fun at harvest festivals and other special events.
Plan to be here this fall, and don't forget your camera. Along all of Plumas County’s scenic highways, you’ll be treated to some of the most dazzling fall foliage in California. Special spots include the Feather River Canyon, Bucks Lake, Lake Almanor, Indian Valley, the Quincy-Oroville Road, the Quincy-La Porte Road, Round Valley Reservoir Road and the Lakes Basin. And some of the best color may be found off-road on a trail or forest service road.
