“Hike the Bizz for your High”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

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.

“Easy access”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

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.

“wonderful day of discovery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

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 to you to do the same and enjoy the adventure. Worth the hunt, it's been rebuilt and part of the hike.

“Great Family Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

We visit the trail often, nearly year round. Sometimes just the two of us, sometimes with visiting family or with grandchildren and their dog. The BLM maintained trail follows alongside the Susan River for about 25 miles. There are places to access the river, bridges, tunnels, beautiful scenery, bicycle riders, old and young walkers. Sometimes we walk for miles. Other times we might take a picnic lunch and sit by the river while the kids enjoy a swimming hole.

A marathon is run on the trail every year, around October.

“adventurous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Fun or the whole family, my boys loved it. Exploring all sorts of plantlife, bugs, water holes, really fun, especially if you make it a picnic kind of day :-)
