This is a great day drive out of Chico. It's a long but easy drive up the Skyway from Paradise California. You can make a loop back to Hwy 32, if you don't mind a little 10 mile dirt road from Inskip to Butte Meadows. Road conditions can change any season out this way. This lil place has no gasoline or general store, so come very prepared if you're planning on staying the night. Camping (primitive style) may be the only option.

  • description:
    Very rural & forested hide-away. A great little drive out there, in a sports car or riding a motorbike. Only passed one camper with a trailer. Lotsa of dirt roads nearby, with dense tall forests, firewood, old trucks, a big red house & barn signed the "Inskip Inn"; Deep snow in these parts of the North Sierra!
