We used to walk portions of this trail along the river, it's mostly flat and easy, easy access to fishing also.

We walked three miles up ad back along the trail. The cliffs above and river beside us made the walk lovely. We walked in the late afternoon and had some lovely photo opportunities. The path is gravel but easy to do in light weight shoes. I wish we had time to walk the trail further.

Best place to bring a family that can did the gravel trail while you explore the single track that parallels. Ride the bus and just do it one way downhill. Recreate and get a history lesson too.

Lovely piece of the rails-to-trails movement. We crossed a number of nice bridges and the terrain is pretty flat.

I loved walking down the trail, seeing such beauty in the forest, the river was frozen over and the water rushing through below, unbelievable experience.

We were there to help with an annual running event and off and on this trail for a couple of days. It goes through some great scenery and is an easy hike. There is a shuttle available at the old Railroad Depot to take hikers and cyclists to the various trail heads.

We followed the advice from other reviews and road west to east. Recommend parking in Westwood close to Shell station (intersection of 38 and A21) if you are staying in Susanville (recommend - nice small Museum, beautiful murals around town, eat at The White House and Pioneer Lodge/Lassen Ale Works). You can then catch the Lassen Rural bus in the... More

Spend a half hour or an entire day. There's something for everyone along the Bizz. Biking, hiking, fishing, swimming, bird watching, even bear scat. It's all there and it's free. Fresh air, sunshine, no crowds (so don't go and ruin it for the rest of us). Just kidding...sort of.

Although this trail goes for over twenty miles, it is only a 20 minute walk to a path to a beach on the Susan River suitable for wading. The trail has been created over an old logging rail spur--it is level, broad, and only for foot and bicycle traffic.

walked with family on this trail. The Ranger at the beginning of it knew next to nothing about it so don't bother asking. We hit the portion around the hobo camp (you will have to interpret this for children) and then set out to find the RR trestle bridge. Several false attempts and then located the access road...I leave it... More
