Bicycling on the Bizz Johnson National Recreation Trail

LassenWestVillage9The Bizz Johnson trail is 25.4 miles long and was named after Harold T. “Bizz” Johnson who served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1958 to 1980. Congressman Johnson was responsible  for the successful establishment of this Rails to Trails project.

The trail runs from the Mason Station trailhead, 4.6 miles north of Westwood to the eastern most trailhead at Susanville Railroad Depot. The trail features two tunnels, 12 bridges and beautiful views of the surrounding mountains.
