Your pooch will agree; a hike on one of the Susanville Ranch Park Trails is the pawfect way to spend an afternoon. The trails are located in Susanville Ranch Park, a beautiful natural space spanning across 1,100 acres. The terrain varies across the massive park and includes riparian corridors, canyons, and meadows.
There are 29 miles of trails that weave in and around the
park, so your pup will have plenty of room to roam. If your pal is in the mood
for a mellow stroll, select one of the trails in the southern end of the park
near Paiute Creek Canyon. Beaver Trail, Old Paul Bunyan Road, or Paiute Creek
Trail are great options. There are also some steeper hikes in this area of the
park. Coyote Bluff Trail or Lazy Lizard Loop will get your doggo huffing and
puffing. Pets and their parents often prefer the southern end of the park because of
the streams and wide open spaces. If your pup is well behaved, they can even
run around off leash!
At the northern end of the park, the trails are a bit
more challenging. Headless Horseman, Best Trail Ever, and Heart attack Hill will
definitely give your pup a leg workout. You can also check out the Boneyard,
though your pup may be disappointed to find out it’s just a hike and not a free
pile of bones. Keep in mind, there are no creeks in this part of the park, so
your pup won’t have any water to cool off in.
Drinking water is not available at
Susanville Ranch Park, so bring plenty of H2O from home so you and your pup don’t
get thirsty. Also, don’t forget to pack some clean up bags and pick up whatever
your doggo drops on the ground. Above all else, have a woofderful time hiking
with your pal in such a pawsome setting!
