Tuesday, Nov, 14, 2000 ]lp SP Lassen County Enjoy thq; snow in the Lassen Forest Now that northeastern Cali- fornia is blanketed with a light coast of snow, Lassen National Forest will soon be trans- formed into a hub of winter ac- tivity. Snowmobilers, downhill and cross country skiers and sled. ders venture off to a variety of locations in the forest. Snowmobiling Lassen's snowmobile routes are hard to beat. The forest touts seven stag- ing areas with parking lots and trails - Ashpan, Morgan Sum- mit, Jonesville, Swain Moun- tain, Fredonyer and the Boga- rd Rest Area. Selected ones have warming huts and groomed trails. All areas re- quire no use fee. * Ashpan -- located in the Hat Creek Ranger District ap- proximately nine miles south- west of the junctions of High- way and 89. Features 39 miles of trails, warming hut, vault toilet and parking. . Morgan Summit -- located in the Almanor Ranger Dis- trict adjacent to the intersec- tion of Highway 36 and 89. Fea- tures 77 miles of trails, warm- ing hut and parking. • Jonesville -- located in the Almanor Ranger District, 1-1/2 miles east of Cherry Hill Campground on Butte Mead- ows Road off Highway 32. Fea- tures 43 miles of trails and parking. • Swain Mountain -- located in the Almanor Ranger Dis- trict on Lassen County Road A- 21, nine miles north of the in- tersection of A-21 and Highway 36. Features 47 miles of trails and parking. • Fredonyer -- located in the eagle Lake Ranger District, 10 miles west of Susanville off Highway 36. Features 80 miles of trails, parking and a vault toilet. • Bogard Rest Area -- locat- ed in the Eagle Lake Ranger District, a5 miles northwest of Susanville off Highway 44. Fea- tures 80 miles of trails, parking and flush toilets. Beyond the q Snowmobiling is prohibited in the Lassen Volcanic Nation- al Park, or in established wilderness areas. Preferred snowmobiling routes can be obtained at the forest service district offices. Cross country skiing The forest offers countless miles of established and marked trails in the Colby Creek and McGowan Lake ar- eas. A real favorite for nordic skiers is the historic Bizz Johnson Trail, which connects Susanville and Westwood. Be- cause of the northern exposure and shading on the upper parts of the trail which skirts High- way 36, the snowpack is espe- cially good for skiing. Other cross country skiing opportunities can be found on Forest Road 32N21 (12 miles west of the Bogard Rest Area off Highway 44). This road carves its way south into Lassen Volcanic National Park and allows skiers to tour into Butte Lake and return -- a dis- tance of apProximately 14 miles.

A num- ber of roads in that area dou- ble as ski trails, extending from the valley into the moun- tains. Hog Flat (northwest of Su- sanville off Highway 44) boasts 10 miles of gentle-rolling trails into the Bogard Rest Area. Aside from the designated area, virtually the entire forest is open to cross country skiers, with challenging terrain on the west side and more peace- ful trails on the east side. Downhill lding Finding a less-crowded ski hill in the forest is no problem.
