Chester/Lake Almanor Area

Lake Almanor and its magnificent views of Lassen Peak make

it a popular base camp for fall foliage drives. Start out on Main

Street in Chester, where cottonwoods and domestic maples grace

the highway and banks of the Feather River. Miles of reddened

dogwood are found east and west on Hwy. 36. Turning onto Feather

River Drive at the fire hall, you’ll be rewarded with glowing birch

and aspen along forest roads to Warner Valley, Benner Creek and

Juniper Lake. East of Chester, follow Hwy. 36 to Hwy. 32, which

parallels Deer Creek. There are many places to pull over and enjoy

the alders, oaks and Indian Rhubarb along the creek. Another

great drive is into Lassen Volcanic National Park on Hwy. 89,

for quaking aspen, thermal pools and stunning landscapes
