The Community Trail at Feather River College is a 1-mile loop trail that takes hikers through an oak woodland and a conifer forest that burned in 1946.
The trail was built in 2006 with Secure Rural Schools money. Funding of $10,000 was allocated by the Plumas County Resource Advisory Committee (RAC) out of the SRS funds.
The trail is the result of a community trail-building class at Feather River College taught by Darrel Jury in fall 2006. Ken Cawley wrote the grant and led a forest thinning project in collaboration with Jury and others.

Officials in Plumas County Office of Education’s Prevention Department are excited to announce the coming of Bob Holmes, “The One-Man Volleyball Team,” to Plumas County.
“Bob’s powerful message on drugs, alcohol, tobacco, suicide, bullying and violence is informative and life-changing,” organizers say.
