>From the Reno airport take the Sage Stage north to Susanville.  Monday,
Wednesday and Friday only.  http://sagestage.com/routes/reno/

The Sage Stage drops you off at the Walmart in Susanville.  From there,
take Lassen Rural Bus to Chester.  Check the West County routes at

I can take you to the trail from Chester, or you can get the Susanville
Rancheria bus from the Chester Holiday Market to the trailhead which
departs daily, except Sunday, at 8:50 a.m.  The Rancheria bus used to be
free, but now they charge a nominal fee.

There is an unpaved parking area at the trailhead on highway 36.  Email me
privately if you need more info for long term parking.
