The trail was easy and it had good views.

This hike is absolutely gorgeous - and not too difficult. It’s fairly steep, but short. And I really didn’t find it as difficult to navigate. It’s not incredibly well marked, but if you read a few descriptions and stay generally heading south, you’ll find the lake! We went on a very hot Sunday (go early; it’s not very shaded as others have noted) and it was pretty popular but not crowded.. The views from Heart Lake are spectacular!

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

Excellent hike easy some of the path is paved. The park was beyond very busy and they had a line of cars out on 89 just to get in. We took Clark Creek road from 89 and found a dirt parking lot that was less than full and provided easy access to the trail. You can walk in about 1000 feet and the trail splits go either direction to access the park.

Thoroughly enjoyable. The falls were spectacular.

Mossbrae falls is well worth the hike! I’ve visited over a dozen times and the waterfall is consistently beautiful year round. I recommend waking the railroad tracks but make sure you do not park in the Shasta retreat neighborhood. Park up on the main road and walk in. You will be walking along active train tracks, be safe!

Poorly marked; lots of off-trail hiking in the snow (not this year) made this a rather difficult hike. I didn’t mind much tho, the views made up for it. Had Heart Lake all to myself.

Easy hike, pretty falls

gorgeous

this is really an incredible hike. It's not that difficult I would say easy to moderate but some may disagree as there are rocks you have to walk over at times and a slight incline parts of the time. The biggest Beast was actually trying to navigate my way there as I was hiking alone. As other people have said in their reviews it's not a well-marked trail but thankfully I ran into some people and we made it to Heart Lake. It is absolutely stunning with Mount Shasta in the background. Highly recommend this hike. Also be adventurous and hike up the rocks on both sides of the lake so that you can get better views.

also note the trailhead is not the one to the right of the parking lot that is right by the lake there it's all the way at the end of the parking lot if you keep going straight and walk through a line of boulders that almost look like it's blocking off the path that you actually walk in between big rocks and you'll eventually get to a stream that you walk over when you hit that you know you're starting to head in the right direction. But it's about three-quarters of a mile into the trip where the path is not well marked and I wish I could help you navigate it but it's nearly impossible to describe. Oh and by the way the last seven miles of driving to get to the trailhead or absolutely beautiful winding roads.

The views on this hike were gorgeous...tons of blooming foliage and that sweet, woodsy scent of the mountain air. However, if you're out of shape, like me, stay away! There is one area of the hike where the trail is dusty and very steep downhill. Make sure you wear shoes with good traction, because I didn't and hurt myself badly. Nothing like hiking 45 mins back covered in blood & dirt! I'm determined to come back and conquer this trail.

Well maintained trail, with a lot of shade. If it weren’t for some step spots this trail would be rated as easy. The falls are definitely worth the hike, and there are swimming holes everywhere along brandy creek trail, but the water is about 40 degrees!

Good place

I am new on all trail app. Only I got in was for the GPS exact location but it doesn’t show GPS location, but asking for pay app for a download map. I will go for other app.

Very nice scenery one of the best Falls in California.

Beautiful afternoon walk around the lake,wasn’t hot,had a light breeze that made it very comfortable for the 7 mile workout

was BEAUTIFUL hiking

Well maintained and clearly marked trail. Great views!

beautiful place to go.

We did this hike on 4th of July morning. Was a nice hike and only took us a couple of hours. There’s a picnic bench at the peak to eat and enjoy the views.

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.

Very nice trail to the falls. We went on 7/4/18 and he flowers were still in bloom. 4 miles, 1:52 minutes in and back.

Me and my girls did this trail a couple weeks ago, it was nice the whole way up but once you get to the top it's amazing.

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.

Cool walk, but trail quality is not all that great

We enjoyed this trail and think most people would. I’m not saying Brandy Creek Trail is hard but it can be challenging.

Walking into this beautiful scenic trail my friend and I were greeted by a dog poop bag hanging from a tree. This was about 20 steps away from the entrance, which has a trash can. The hike up to the peak is more of a moderate difficulty for two chubby women. The view at the peak is worth the chaffing thighs and sweat. Be sure to bring water!

Or would be hiking. I’m sure the trail is beautiful but it’s $6/day to use this area, even with a Recreational Lands Pass (its some kind of special recreational permit). Sorry, but there are lots of beautiful places around here that are free. We got out, got right back in, and won’t be back.

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