Little Chico Creek is a perennial stream in Butte County, California. It rises in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada from a spring off Headwaters Road in Forest Ranch, Ca., and flows westward into the Parrot Grant which is just south of Ord Ferry Road and west of Seven Mile Lane where it just disappears. It flows through Chico and forms the southern boundary of the downtown area. In the area just west of the railroad tracks it becomes seasonal. The water infiltrates into the ground by summer.
