Susanville, CA 96130
Take a hike, mountain bike, horseback ride or jog along the path of the old southern Pacific railroad bed. This 25 mile segment of the Fernley and Lassen Branch line between Susanville and Mason Station along the scenic Susan River.
The 25 mile trail was once the roadbed of Southern Pacific's 130 mile Fernley and Lassen Branch Railway, and has been converted to a riding and hiking trail. Echoes of the old steam engines pulling their loads of logs and lumber past logging camps and depots will be your companions as you explore the rich history along the trail.
You can pick up an Interpretive Trail Guide and Map at any Lassen National Forest office, at the Susanville Depot, or at the Bureau of Land Management office in Susanville. Trailheads are accessed in Susanville and at various points along highways 44 and 36.
