The Almanor Basin Trails Collaborative will be hosting two public open houses in late October to share its vision of a trail network that will connect the communities of Susanville, Westwood, Clear Creek, Hamilton Branch, Canyon Dam, Prattville, Lake Almanor West, Chester, Bailey Creek and the Lake Almanor Country Club. The Trails Collaborative currently consists of the following organizations: Almanor Recreation and Parks District, Mountain Meadows Conservancy, Feather River Land Trust, Lassen Land and Trails Trust, Caribou Alliance for Trails, Lassen County, the United States Forest Service, PG&E and the National Park Service, along with local citizens. These groups have been working with staff from the National Park Service Rivers, Conservation and Trails Assistance program to develop the plan. A public open house will be held in Chester on Tuesday, Oct. 23, at the Almanor Recreation Center on Meadowbrook Loop.
