Backroads of Northern California: Your Guide to Northern California's Most Scenic
Backroad Tours

David M. Wyman, '70, Social Science
(Voyageur Press, 2000, 160 pages)

The following is an excerpt from page 152 of alum David Wyman's new book.

Butte Creek Canyon and
the Centerville Road

When I was a college student I would occasionally drive a few miles with my girlfriend to the Honey Run Road Covered Bridge in Butte Creek Canyon, not far from Chico State. We would walk across the bridge, listening to our footsteps echo inside the wooden span, listening to the water flowing beneath us, and then share a kiss in the night gone suddenly very still.

It's been a long time since I've kissed anyone at the covered bridge. But I have been back—in daylight—to enjoy the history and picturesque scenery of Butte Creek Canyon that I didn't quite care as much about when I was in college.

To reach the mouth of Butte Creek Canyon from California Highway 99, take the Skyway exit in Chico, drive northeast about a mile and a half, and turn left onto Honey Run Road. (The Skyway continues to the town of Paradise, traveling up the ridge that is the south wall of Butte Creek Canyon.) Honey Run Road quickly enters Butte Creek Canyon and travels beneath a canopy of oaks, liquid amber (sweetgum), and digger pines, following along the north side of Butte Creek. The black cliffs above the road are ancient lava flows that originated far to the north in the Cascade Range. Those flows, which continued for millions of years, cover the even older Sierra bedrock, which is exposed at the bottom of the canyon. Butte Creek Canyon is, then, a meeting place between two great mountain ranges.
