Multi-use, non-motorized. Public access to the area for walking, biking and horseback riding is from January through October.

Overview

This area is a conservation easement owned and managed by Lassen Land and Trails Trust. The trails were constructed in March of 2014 and offer a beautiful experience.

Description

The trail starts off meandering through high desert grassland and sagebrush, then quickly climbs onto a wide open ridge. Sunrise is a special time here. The views are very dramatic.

History & Background

Lassen Creek Conservation Area, which the Trust owns and manages, is just one example of the Trusts work to conserve wildlife habitat and regional water resources. The 385-acre conservation area is included in a California Department of Fish and Wildlife Conceptual Area of Protection Plan for mule deer habitat, providing winter range for the seasonal migration of the Lassen herd. The Trust continues to work on restoration of the bitterbrush habitat, damaged after a wildfire.

A new interpretive kiosk is being installed at the public parking lot off Richmond Road and a 5-mile walking trail through a grant from the California Department of Parks and Recreation and Proposition 84.
