  • Beautiful old covered bridge on Butte creek. Many little swimming holes all around and great spot for family photos.
  • Great historical bridge to visit in the beautiful Honey Run canyon. Pedestrians and bikes can go onto the bridge, which is no longer in use. In the Summer many locals swim and picnic in the river up and down stream. Very quiet area to visit during the week and winter. This area has a rich gold history. The road just beyond the bridge leads up to the city of Paradise where a 54 pound nugget of gold was discovered.
  • Wonderful historical spot to take the family and enjoy the bridge, the creek and the overall scenery.
  • Great place for tubing in the summer.
  • The water is nice here and the bridge is a very cool old land mark
