Big weekend on the Bizz
Lassen County residents and athletes from across the country celebrated the long-awaited reopening of the Devil's Corral Trestle on the Bizz Johnson National Recreation Trail near Susanville over the Columbus Day weekend. Restoration of the 1913-era bridge was made possible by about $1.4 million in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment ACT (ARRA). The trestle, an icon of the trail, stretches 270 feet across the Susan River canyon. It is 70 feet tall.
The ribbon cutting and marathon (and associated half-marathons and 10K run) were on the same weekend as the 18th annual Rails to Trails Festival, a community celebration of the Bizz Johnson Trail.
