SUSAN RIVER CYN FALL COLORS HIKE - Southside Tr to Bizz Loop from Devils Corral
Posting by ANDREW H.: At half-past Noon we will meet at the Devils Corral trailhead 7 mi West of Susanville on Hwy 36 to begin this moderate 5 mi. loop hike taking in great views and Fall colors of the Susan River Canyon. From the trailhead we will cross the Bizz Rails-to-Trails trail and take the singletrack Southside Trail down to cross the Susan River on a small footbridge, then hike East in the direction of Susanville on the Southside Trail well up on the S. side of the Susan River Canyon. From the high trail we will have scenic views of the river as well as changing Cottonwoods, Aspen, Oaks and Willows. Still on the Southside Trail, we will cross Cheney Creek on a small wooden footbridge, then ascend high over the Bizz rail tunnel. Past the tunnel, we will take a connector trail over to the Bizz trail itself and hike through the tunnels and on the Bizz back to Devils Corral where we started. DEVILS CORRAL TRAILHEAD: We will meet at 12:30 p.m. to begin the trip at the Devils Corral Trailhead. That trailhead parking area has restrooms and is located about 7 mi west of Susanville on the south side of State Route 36. There are trailhead signs on Hwy 36, with the trailhead just East of where the Hwy 36 bridge crosses the Susan River. https://www.hikingproject.com/trail/7002763/bizz-johnson-national-recreation-trail BRING: Drinking water, lunch or snack, layered clothing for varied temperatures, sun, shade and breeze.
