The Hat Creek route will take you through a highly pristine riparian corridor lined with Ponderosa pine, Oregon and black oak, and willow species. The creek is crystal clear and shallow in some places, allowing clear views of the substrate and occasional obsidian flakes and points. Project partners led by Cal Trout, the Pit River Tribe, PG & E and Fall River Resource Conservation District are working hard to improve this amazing reach. A new bridge was constructed in 2016 at the same location of the historic Carbon bridge (located by the town of Carbon) along the river in early settlement times. Visit out interactive hiking map.
