No. of Reviews: 5


Check it out! They have added about 14 miles of singletrack in the upper ranch section of the Susanville Ranch Park, Susanville, Ca.

If you are not riding the Bizz Johnson Trail, you can take the mountain bike to the upper ranch and play.

"Susanville Ranch Park: Great views, well-maintained trails and close proximity to town describe Susanville Ranch Park, an 1,100-acre park owned and managed by Lassen County as a shared use recreation area. The Park is located northeast of Hwy 36 (Main Street) in Susanville and provides plenty of day-use parking. "

Summary:
Last weekend, my friend and I went to Susanville Ranch and rode. The trails were well made and maintained, you half to ride up to get to the top but the ride down was a blast. If you ask for Joel at the main office and set a date and time with him he will gladly lead you around the mountain. They have 26 miles of bike trails and a couple miles of jumps and drops. If you go, you will have a fun time guaranteed.

Summary:
Susanville Ranch Park hosts a number of trails. Close to 27 miles total. Fast,smooth, flowing single track works it's way throughout the 1100 acre park. The lower trails in the meadow area are geared for beginners but head west of the meadow and ride the newest addition to the park if you are an intermediate to advanced rider. This area has lots of features and can be as challenging as you want to make it. Once you have concord the new section of trails, head to the North East side of the park. Challenge yourself with the well known climb up Heart Attack Hill. This is a 2 mile section that is steep and challenging. Once you reach the top of Heart Attack you will have several loops to choose from. Stay on the far right loop (east side loop) for a few more miles of moderate climbing with rest stops and benches perched on rock outcroppings along the way to enjoy the beautiful views. Once you reach the top of the East Loop let the fun begin with ripping fast, flowing single track and nicely banked turns. After finishing the East loop but before descending Heart Attack, head out to the middle loop. Again the climb is moderate to the top of the middle loop which is the highest point in the park. Again you will find benches and great views. If you are an advanced rider you will like the short but very challenging decent off the top of this section. It is very rocky with a few steps and gnarly obstacles. Drop the middle trail for about .5 miles and you will see a trail to your right just before the dirt road. Follow this trail for more fast downhill single track. Finally there will be an option at the bottom of the trail to go right or left. Head right to the third loop. This loop will take you to a steep canyon with many options to ride but all of the trails will take you to the top where you will find yourself in dense forest. From here you continue about another mile where you again find really fast smooth single track and banked turns for your down hill enjoyment. Finally head back to the top of Heart Attack hill for an amazing final decent from the North loops.

Summary:
SICK TRAILS!!!!!! So much fun. Drove up from Reno to ride these trails and it was so worth it. Rode with one of the local/ trail builders who hooked us up with the all the info. We only rode the new stuff, I guess it would be on the south side of the ranch and it was awesome, flowy single track with lots of jumps and berms. Can't wait to get back and ride the older stuff on the north side, if it is half as good as what I rode today the 75 mi drive will be well worth it.

Summary:
A network of fun, fast, technical single track loops. I just rode this trail and am very impressed with all the verity. It starts with a climb, but it goes quickly because of the interesting turns all the way to the top, then you get to take your pick of going left or right. I went right and tried to ride as much as I could. I could spend hours on these 14 miles connecting the loops in different ways. If you are in the Susanville or Lake Almanor/Chester area you should definitely check this out.

Recommended Route:
One of the things that makes this trial so great is that you could link trails together many different ways. I just kept looking at the signs (they are at every intersection) and worked my way from west to east with a grand finally of sweet single track downhill goodness.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Not much happening around here.
