Jones, finding “fabulous” fall colors that have “popped out brightly all over and just about at the same time!”She estimates that the route is at full peak, though this is an area that should stay good through early November.

It sits at the base of Spanish Peak in the Plumas National Forest, which is full of native aspen, maple, dogwood, cottonwood, pine and fir.
“CA-89 from CA-70 towards Taylorsville, Greenville and Chester is very beautiful, with a lot of color along Indian Creek.”
