Resource Conservation District and Trails Trust to Host Public Meeting Thursday

Monday, March 20th, 2017

The Modoc Line rail trail, on the old N-C-O railway bed, makes an ideal outing for bicyclists or hikers.

The Honey Lake Valley Resource Conservation District has applied for planning grant funds through the California State Park Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division for the Modoc Line Rail Trail.

The Modoc Line planning grant is a partnership project with the Lassen Land and Trails Trust and the Bureau of Land Management.

If the grant is approved in June, the partnership will complete the environmental analysis to maintain 46 miles of the 80-mile rail-trail and to construct five future trailhead parking areas. Structural inspections and condition assessments of all trail bridges, culverts, and former railroad buildings will also be conducted.

The public is invited to a community meeting on Thursday, March 23rd at 5:00p.m. at the Historic Susanville Railroad Depot at 601 Richmond Road to discuss the Modoc Line and other trails projects the Trust is working on.

“We value your opinions,” said Trust spokesperson Elizabeth Norton. “Please stop by and share your ideas about your priority trails and what trail improvement projects you’d like to see in Lassen County.”

The public may also review and comment on the RCD’s Modoc Line application at the Division’s website,   Public comments about the Modoc Line project are due by Monday, April 3rd.

For more information about the Trust’s work or about trails to enjoy in our area, please visit  or call 530-257-3252.
