Race course trails will only be open to those participating in the race. The BLM expects approximately 200 competitors.  

“For safety reasons we must keep casual riders off the trails, while these high-speed races are underway,” said Marisa Williams, an outdoor recreation planner for the BLM Eagle Lake Field Office in Susanville.

Spectators are welcome in a designated viewing area near the start/finish line at the trailhead on the east side of the Fort Sage Mountains. To reach the trailhead, take the Laver Crossing Road (just north of Doyle) east from Highway 395. Turn right on Hackstaff Road, then turn left onto Fort Sage Road. Follow the road about seven miles to the Widowmaker Trailhead. The route will be marked with flags and signs. 

The races are sponsored by the Lassen Motorcycle Club and the Motorcycle Racing Association of Northern Nevada, which have a special permit from the BLM. The organizers will provide course marshals, and the BLM will provide law enforcement rangers and staff to help monitor the event.

For more information, telephone Marisa Williams at the BLM office in Susanville, (530) 252-5303.
