California Fall Color
Dude, autumn happens here, too.

Whiskeytown – Last Taste of Color in the Shasta Cascade

Color spotter Cynthia Shedd provides the final fall color report before Thanksgiving Day, reporting that there’s still color to appear at Whiskeytown National Recreation Area, though the national park is vibrant with red, orange and yellow.

Butte County:

Past Peak- Butte County- Don’t worry, be happy! Though it’s past peak in Butte County, there is still quite a bit of color to be seen.   The Maples and Oaks are hanging on strong to their leaves. Rustic reds and modest yellows are the primary colors covering the trees up high and the forest floors down low.

Shasta County:

50-75% – Whiskeytown National Recreation Area- Come out to Whiskeytown National Recreation Area if you are still seeking fall color. The park is slowly growing closer and closer to reaching peak and the Oranges, Yellows, and Reds are all vibrant.

 Past Peak- Burney Falls State Park – While there are a few leaves still clinging to the trees, the fall colors have mostly receded till next year.

 Tehama County:

Past Peak- Lassen Volcanic National Park- Lassen is past its peak and due to weather there is very little left in terms of fall color.

Lassen County:

Past Peak- Bizz Johnson Trail- There is still some color left on the Trail, especially near the waterways. Winter winds have picked up so grab a jacket and make sure to hike through this whirlwind of tranquil color.

Siskiyou County:

Past Peak- Mt. Shasta- Due to weather conditions, very few leaves are left on the trees. Old Man winter is now in charge.

Trinity County:

Past Peak- Weaverville- Winter has moved into the Weaverville area, but patches of color can still be seen for the avid adventurer.

Plumas County:

Past Peak- Plumas County-  Due to snow, the majority of the fall color is gone, but don’t be surprised if you see a few oak trees hanging onto their color with an iron fist.

Modoc County:

Past Peak – Modoc County- Due to the cold and windy conditions, Fall is pretty much over in Modoc county except for maybe a few tough leaves.
