Almanor Rail Trail Description

This 13 mile, non-motorized, multi-use trail is currently being improved to create a smoother tread surface for equestrians, hikers and bikers. It extends from downtown Chester where it crosses Main Street and ends at Clear Creek Junction off State Route 147 near the community of Clear Creek. The trail offers many scenic views of the lake and Lassen high country.

Parking and Trail Access

Trailhead parking is located west of the State Route 36 causeway on the Olsen Barn property at the eastern edge of Chester. Other parking is located at Clear Creek Junction, but park away from the active BNSF rail line.
