Belden Town

Nestled in the Sierra Mountains and tucked away in the Feather River Canyon hides a magical town called Belden. Belden Town Resort and Lodge is located on Highway 70, 28 miles west of Quincy, California. The resort offers both indoor and outdoor dining on the outside deck and a fully-stocked bar.

When you are not shaking your thing on the dance floor you can swim, float or fish the gorgeous Feather River, tube the white water rapids, pan for gold or even hike the amazing Pacific Crest Trail that passes right through Belden Town! Or you can just sit on the deck and relax over lunch, while enjoying nature and all it has to offer!
