We have ridden this trail several times over the years and love it. Lots of bribes, creeks and water to ride beside, and some old railroad tunnels dot the trail. You can do 25 miles one way if you like, or just ride different sections as their are trailheads all along where you can start or end a ride. We... More

Outstanding riding trail which meanders along the Susan River. The trail offers a great riding experience for all ages, beginners to experienced mountain bike riders, all with an outstanding view of the Susan River and Sierra Mts. A must ride when you visit the Susanville, CA area!

The Biz trail is a great place to spend time hiking or biking. Nice scenery and the trail runs along the Susan River. There are many entry points.

It's been a long time since my brother, I and a couple dogs hikes this trail named for the man that made the conversion of old railway tracks into trails. We had a beautiful hike on this gradual grade wide trail. This is used by horseback riders, hikers, runners etc. We parked at the trailhead in Susanville, hiked several days... More

A great place for an easy hike. It's an old railroad line so it is smooth. The whole walk is next to the river and in the trees. Plus you go through tunnels and over bridges. It's very scenic.

Excellent place to bike ride, horse ride, run, and swim. Bevel if you are jumping off the wall at the second bridge though. It's not as safe as it may appear.

Was in Susanville in August on business and had a half day break. Perfect time for a short hike along the trail and a dip in the very low (darn drought) Susan River, which was icy cold.

Fine wide trail made from old railroad line. Tunnels and old railroad bridges make this a fun run or bike.
