Did Hat Creek up to Paradise Meadow and then up to Terrace and Shadow Lakes, Have done the hike before, but turned my sons and my daughter's boyfriend on to it. Great hike, climbed 75 stories in 3.1 miles. Stunning vistas as you get past Paradise Meadow. I am 69 and kept up with my 29 year old sons, they let me rest on the way up! Shadow Lake will take your breath away, it is so beautiful. Next to Broke Off and Kings Creek , my favorite hike in the park and I have done 85% of the trails since 1974.

Have always loved this hike. Not as easy as it used to be since the big fire that went through it a few years ago, but it is still a beautiful hike.

I would love to find those responsible for spray painting the walls. they should serve jail time. the hike is easy and short.

great hike, but hard seeing all the burn areas. rarely used, compared to the past. fish in lakes, mostly smaller with a few surprises. lots of wildlife, and established campsites.

We often bring friends and family, especially kids. At 6'2" I will bump my head on the ceiling in places, and. looking up you'll trip on nobby places on floor. The entire walk is slower than the milage indicates and outside part hot and dry in summer, carry water if you bring kids.

This was a nice moderate hike easily marked. Meadow was beautiful but lots of kids and people came at the end and took away from that. No worries tho. Also on the way back I split off and took the trail up to one of the lakes back there. Nice hike for sure.

Such and amazing view and close to my campground. The reflection off the lake of lassen peak was so beautiful! Manzanita campground was crowded but also has some awesome amenities and located in such a great spot! I loved this little loop you don’t even have to do the whole thing you could just walk around find the perfect view and chill! Also stayed around end of July 2017

Enjoyed the trail it is always calming to be around the waters edge.

Peaceful walk even if there was smoke in the air from a fire on the backside of Lassen. Maybe next time we might try kayaking.

So much to see on this one loop!

best swimming spot around ❤

The trail was easy and it had good views.

Easy trail with a beautiful waterfall and swimming hole at the bottom. Only con is that there is a lot of litter!

gorgeous

Good place

This is a great little day hangout. The falls are so beautiful and you can hear and see them the moment you arrive. There’s an opportunity to “hike” around the falls. Very short, but worth the stroll. Multiple trails, including PCT, if you’re looking for something more lengthy/difficult. Very touristy, lots of people, but a must see!

beautiful place to go.

A gentle easy loop around this very pleasant lake. Great views of Mount Lassen that reflect on the surface of the water. Ducks and fish and deers in abundance.

My first visit to Lassen. I chose this hike so that I'd have time to explore the rest of the park as well. So glad I did! Beautiful all the way up to the meadow, lots of wildflowers (early July), waterfalls, butterflies & dragonflies, too.

It's a must to visit!
Love this place.

Interesting cave. Rough ground to walk on. Be sure to have a good light source. We can check it off our bucket list.

This is one of my favorite spots! Super short hike, but the falls fill your heart! :) The water is pretty cold. Fun to walk down the creek a bit. Love this one!!!

This is amazing. True slice of paradise. We be back again. Went on a weekday and no one was there.

We stopped here on our way to the 3 lakes - it’s beautiful and there were waterfalls, streams and tons of greenery and wildflowers.

Easy and beautiful

Excellent. Previous reviews say it well. Note: your smart phone flashlight will NOT suffice (unless you like running the risk of stubbing your toes or tripping). Note regarding dogs: a previous reviewer cautioned dog owners regarding tender paws and lava rock. Here's my point of view: if your dog primarily hangs out in the house or on a backyard lawn then you may want to be careful about taking your dog through. The lava rock underfoot is dirt and mud covered, but it does poke out in multiple places and could hurt a tender paw. If your dog regularly walks or hikes with you on varied terrain including cement, gravel, rocks, etc. and you take reasonable precautions about which path your furry friend takes in the cave, you should be fine. My husky walks and hikes frequently; his paw pads had no problem with the cave floor.

What an awesome experience. Bring your flashlights or you won’t make it through!! A short walk up well established steps leads you right to the opening of the cave. Within minutes you are inside the lava tubes. We went early in the morning after a rainstorm and could see water crystals on the roof of the lava tubes. Easy enough for kids but hold their hands because of the rough rocky ground. Definitely a must stop if in the area
