Butte County

Lassen County

Lassen Country is a jewel of Northern California and an outdoor recreation paradise. The mountainous west encourages camping, hiking, fishing, snowmobiling, snow shoeing and cross-country skiing. The Bizz Johnson Rail Trail is one of the best “rail to trail” conversions in California.

Modoc County

Modoc County, in the far northeast corner of California, combines a fabulous four-season climate with abundant natural resources and a colorful "Wild-West" history. With less than 10,000 residents, its quiet atmosphere offers a peaceful setting for a family vacation or a private retreat.

Plumas County

Rugged canyons, glassy lakes, trout filled streams, picturesque meadows, pine forests, mountain golf resorts and star-filled skies are all part of what define Plumas County. The area boasts dozens of lakes, thousands of miles of rivers and streams, and over a million acres of National Forest.

Tehama County

At the northern end of the great Sacramento Valley and just 90 minutes north of Sacramento lies a land of beautiful contrasts, Tehama Country. The strong western heritage will capture your heart and awaken your spirit.

Trinity County
