Bureau of Land Management and Lassen Rural Bus Invite Community to Fall Colors Ride


It’s that time of year once more when the colors of fall bring The Bureau of Land Management and Lassen Rural Bus together to invite the community to enjoy fall along the Bizz Johnson Recreation Trail.

The BLM and Lassen Rural Bus’s annual fall colors bike ride and shuttle will take place on Saturday, Oct. 21st. If you wish to join, the BLM will shuttle bikes, and the bus will carry riders from Susanville to starting points on the trail.

You should meet at 8:15 a.m. at the historic Susanville Depot on Richmond Road. From there, the bus and shuttle depart promptly at 8:30 a.m. There will be small separate fees for the bus and bike shuttles. The bus and bike shuttle will stop at Devil’s Corral Trailhead, Fredonyer Summit, and near Westwood, where you can ride or walk seven, 18, or 25 miles back to Susanville.

You are advised to dress in layers for the season’s changing weather conditions. The trail’s downhill and gravel, flat surface make it ideal for families and those of all ages. If choosing to ride the trail the BLM recommends wide-tired or hybrid bikes.

You can reserve your space on the bus and shuttle by calling the Susanville BLM office at 530-257-0456.
