Season's Final Bizz Johnson Shuttles Are Scheduled

The year's final Bizz Johnson Trail bus shuttles are scheduled for October, during the Rails to Trails Festival and to celebrate fall colors.  The shuttles enable bike riders, hikers and joggers to take one-way trips on the trail without having to arrange their own vehicle shuttles.
 
Two shuttles will run Sunday, Oct. 5, as part of the Rails to Trails Festival in Susanville.  Additionally, two shuttles are planned for Saturday, Oct. 25 to support the annual Bizz Johnson Trail Fall Colors Bike Ride.

For both events a Lassen Rural Bus shuttle will depart from the Susanville Railroad Depot on Richmond Road at 8:30 a.m. and 11 a.m., making stops at Devil’s Corral, Fredonyer Pass and Mason Station en route to its final stop at the Westwood Trailhead.
 
Shuttle users should be at the Susanville Depot a half-hour before departure to allow time for bicycle loading.
 
Depending on the stop, hikers and mountain bikers can use the trail for return trips that are 7, 12, 18, 25 or 30 miles in length.  Bus fares vary depending on the stop.
 
For more information, contact the BLM Eagle Lake Field Office (530) 257-0456 or the Susanville Railroad Depot Visitor Center, (530) 257-3252.
