At the Crossroads in Susanville Ranch Park
Susanville Ranch Park is a 1,100-acre park property in northeast California, owned and managed by Lassen County as a shared-use recreation area. The Bureau of Land Management manages 80 acres of property in the western area of the park. Susanville Ranch Park lies in the heart of one of the most unique and diverse landscapes in America.
Park users will also find an amazingly diverse biological display while traveling the park’s trails. The riparian corridors along Bagwell and Paiute Creeks in the southern portion of the park contain the greatest biodiversity on the property with beaver ponds, willows, cottonwoods, watercress, amphibians, reptiles, small and large mammals, birds, and fish. There are dramatic stands of Jeffrey pine, dispersed incense cedar, fir, juniper and black oak trees covering the hillsides around and above the three open grass meadows in the park. Luckily, there is no poison oak.
