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.
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.
We started on the trail at Olsens Barn I. Chester. Beautiful pasture. Flat. Worn down grass path to the river. And then...had to make our way on our town until we caught a very lightly worn path out to the lake. However, don’t go that far. The land is very wet and mossy. Turn onto the gravel path and take that as far as you can. Lovely 3.3mi walk this morning with the dogs.
