  • It's Cooler Up Here

  • Discover the Treasures of Paradise!

    Our intriguing gold-rush past and vibrant present beckon visitors and newcomers to our beautiful mountain community amid the pines and above the fog. Originally inhabited by Native Maidu communities, the Paradise Ridge saw an influx of settlers during the gold rush. In fact, the largest nugget ever found was discovered here on the Ridge.

    The incorporated Town of Paradise, and unincorporated communities of Magalia and Stirling City are perched in the foothills of North East California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains. The Ridge ranges in elevation from 2000 to 3570 feet. Paradise is located twelve miles east of Chico and ninety miles north of Sacramento.
