Roads to the Ridge


It is said that "all roads lead to Paradise" ...




Each route to the Paradise Ridge offers its own breathtaking scenic views of mountains, canyons, wildflowers, tall pine trees, lakes and rivers, all of which add to the natural beauty of Paradise and Ridge communities.

Drive alert! Stop only where it is safe to do so. If you venture off road, you're responsible for informing yourself of the hazards and taking the necessary precautions when doing so.



These roads require more driving precautions!

Neal Road
A less traveled route into Paradise from Highway 99, about 7 miles south of Chico, is Neal Road. It brings you to the Skyway in lower Paradise. Neal Road offers yet another scenic approach to and from Paradise.

Pentz Road
From SR 70 another route to the Ridge, a few miles past the Highway 191 turnoff, is Pentz Road. Pentz Road leads you through mostly residential Paradise on its east side, and by Feather River Hospital. There are some beautiful homes on the Ridge. To sample a few, turn right on Lago Vista Way just before entering the town limits. Pentz Road ends at the Skyway at the upper end of Paradise town limits, just above Clark Road. About 2 miles after turning on Pentz Road from Highway 70, Lime Saddle Recreation Area will be on your right. Lime Saddle is a popular boat ramp/marina and picnic area. Leaving Paradise on Pentz Road you'll experience an commanding view of this area. Imagine the early settlers traveling this route.

Honey Run Road
Honey Run Road, a lesser known route, takes off the Skyway as you are leaving Chico. This is the route into Butte Creek Canyon and to the Honey Run Covered Bridge built in 1894. Honey Run Road continues to the right across the metal bridge into Paradise, but be forewarned ... it is 5-miles of a twisting, single-lane, uphill road not recommended for motorhomes. Centerville Road to your left takes you to Centerville and eventually to the upper-Ridge area.

Centerville Road
If you happened to venture into Centerville after visiting the Honey Run Covered Bridge, be sure to stop and visit the Centerville Museum and Centerville Cemetery. Continuing on Centerville Road will eventually bring you to the upper ridge area at Nimshew above Paradise Pines. Turn left on Nimshew Road to the Skyway. Just past this turn is the road to Nimshew Pioneer Cemetery. The road beyond Centerville is a twisting, rocky-dirt, uphill grade, not recommended for motorhomes.
