What could be sweeter? A super-fast scenic trail that?s groomed to perfection and easy on your knees, winds mile after mile through northeast California?s most gorgeous landscapes. You might just set a course records as it is never steeper than an extremely mild 2%, and it loses over 1,100? in elevation overall. The surface is packed dirt and fine gravel for a trail experience that?s blissfully road-safe. It?s a great marathon for first-timers and veterans alike.
The Bizz Johnson trail traverses a beautiful remote area that?s inaccessible by roads, so there are no cars, no noise, and no crossings! Arguably the country?s most scenic marathon, it?s particularly lovely in the fall, when gorgeous seasonal yellows, browns, and greens are on display. Your 26.2 mile adventure begins in the picturesque logging town of Westwood, home of Paul Bunyan, the giant logger of legend, where there?s a huge redwood-hewn statue of Paul and his blue ox, Babe.
There is also a 1/2 Marathon, 10K and 5K.
Registration is at the Susanville Train Depot on Weatherow St.
