Join the Big Chico Creek Watershed Alliance on a pilgrimage hike to the Headwaters of Big Chico Creek.  The hike will begin at the scenic and historic Boy Scout Camp Lake in Butte Meadows and continue upstream along a restored meadow.  From the meadow we’ll be traveling along logging roads within Sierra Pacific Industries property and Forest Service lands to the main spring where Big Chico Creek originates.  This hike is a great chance to see where it all begins, to observe the creek in a different landscape, and to take a moment and appreciate all that the creek provides us on a daily basis.
