California: Bizz Johnson Trail
Posted on Tuesday, April 18 @ 23:57:36 CDT by iljiana

Horse Camping & Trails The Bizz Johnson Trail is in northeastern California, along the Susan River in Lassen County. The main trail head is at the old Railroad Depot in the City of Susanville, about 90 miles north of Reno and about 90 miles east of Red Bluff, California.
BLM Office (530) 257-0456.


Following the old Fernley and Lassen Branch Line of the Southern Pacific railroad, the trail winds 25.4 miles from Susanville to Mason Station. For the first 16 miles, the trail follows the Susan River. As it winds through the rugged Susan River Canyon, the trail crosses the river 12 times on bridges and trestles and passes through two tunnels. The landscape is a combination of semi-arid canyon and upland forests of pine and fir.
The trail then follows existing roads an additional 4.5 miles into Westwood, where a railroad station type kiosk and a 25-foot carved redwood statue of Paul Bunyan mark the Westwood trailhead.

The trail has four distinct seasons because of the high elevation location. The trail begins at 4200' on the east side of the Sierra and Cascade Ranges in Susanville, climbs 1300' to a high point of 5500' at Westwood Junction then drops 400' to its terminus in Westwood at elevation 5100'. Check current conditions before planning a trip on the trail by calling (530) 257-0456.


Primitive camping is permitted along the trail on BLM and U.S. Forest Service lands.
Lodging is available in Susanville, Westwood and the surrounding area. For a list of area lodging, call the Lassen County Chamber of Commerce at (530) 257-4323.

The US Forest Service has an undeveloped drive-in campground area at Goumaz.
No camping is allowed at or within one mile of Hobo Camp or Devils Corral, unless authorized. Camping is prohibited along the South Side Road within the Susan River Canyon west of Hobo Camp.

Campfires require permits from the Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Forest Service or the California Department of Forestry. Between Susanville and Devil's Corral, build fires in designated fire-safe areas only. Seasonal fire restrictions may apply along the entire trail - campfires may be prohibited at times of peak fire danger.

See detailed directions to the
Bizz Johnson Trail.

For more information: Call the BLM's Eagle Lake Field Office at
(530) 257-0456, or the Lassen National Forest, Eagle Lake Ranger District
at (530) 257-2151.

The Bizz Johnson Trail is jointly managed by the
Bureau of Land Management
and the U.S. Forest Service.
