Enjoy outdoor adventure and history in Westwood

A tiny town in California's Lassen County, Westwood appeals to travelers looking to get off the beaten track to enjoy some downtime with family or friends. The town boasts a proud history as the former base of the Red River Lumber Company, although modern visitors are drawn to a stay in a Westwood vacation rental by the abundance of outdoor adventure to be found on the doorstep. The glassy waters of the nearby Lake Almanor beg to be explored by kayak or boat, while the Lassen Volcanic National Park offers up picture-perfect vistas from a variety of vantage points.

Explore stunning landscapes near Westwood

Mother Nature reigns supreme in this scenic part of the world, but the pace at which you enjoy her spoils is up to you. Kick back a little as you relax on one of the beaches along the Lake Almanor shoreline, or rent a speedboat and water skis for some high-energy fun. Away from the water, the choice of activities is equally diverse. The Devil's Kitchen and Domingo Springs areas invite hikers to put their best foot forward, while from June to October, the Caribou Wilderness Area is a magnet for those wishing to soak up the scenery on horseback.

Get a culture fix in Westwood

While outdoor adventure is part of the deal here, those looking to squeeze a little culture into their stay won't have to look far. A trip to the Westwood Museum and the huge statue of the legendary logger Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox are a memorable way to kick off any peek into the area's past. From there, a quick drive to nearby Susanville, the western Great Basin's 2nd oldest town, serves up the chance to wander through a historic uptown area complete with highlights such as Pancera Plaza and the Pioneer Saloon. Be sure to look out for the town's colorful murals.

Choose your favorite season in Westwood

Unless you're keen to strap on your skis, spring, summer, or early fall is the best time to set up camp in a Westwood vacation rental. Not only can you expect temperatures to hover around the 80s, it is during these seasons that the attractions in the area are at their best, particularly if you plan to spend time on the lake. Off-season rentals are not out of the question, though. Nearby Plumas County boasts an abundance of activities that are equally enticing in October through May, not least the chance to explore the area's pristine winter terrain.

Discover diverse trails near Westwood

The landscape in this area is, of course, one of the main reasons that travelers are so keen on Westwood vacation rentals. The Lassen Volcanic National Park's more than 150 miles of trails offer nature lovers the chance to marvel at clear mountain lakes, gigantic steam vents, and meadows carpeted with wildflowers. Another popular hangout is the Bizz Johnson Recreation Trail, a meandering route along the old Fernley Railroad Line between Westwood and Susanville. Covering 25 miles, the trail takes in highlights such as the Susan River Canyon and the Cascade Range.
