We went in September of 2018 and this was a very beautiful hike. The trail back up was pretty steep but you do get to see more of the falls. It has two overlooks and wasn't very crowded. Would suggest layers, gets colder in shaded areas.

Not much hiking but plenty of relaxing. Good vibes (and not many people on a sunny November day). Will be back in the summer to swim.

We hiked in during an ice storm. It was still amazing.

Such a beautiful hike. We used the steeper, shorter trail in the way out and were surprised to see there were more falls on the way up!

Great short walk to get down to the falls. Little hidden gem tucked away in the middle of Northern California forest. Very shaded beautiful little swimming area in the creek below the falls before it journeys on down to the Pit River arm of Shasta Lake.
Off the beaten path to get to trail head, but worth the drive if you want to pack a lunch and enjoy a quiet scenic drive to a secluded little trail to Potem Falls.

Great hike. Very cool lake.

Awesome trail. Worth the hike. I did this trail with my 2 year old on my back. The cascade falls is really amazing.

The trail guide doesn’t do this one justice. The best part isn’t the destination—it’s the views and sounds on the way. My suggestion, take a picnic lunch and enjoy.

We did this short and relatively easy hike as the sun was setting, and it was quite pleasant. We would have liked an earlier start so we could have spent more time on the shore, but enjoyed it nonetheless.

Beautiful place, hiking through the meadow and seeing the various waterfalls. My son enjoyed it.

Very nice view of Kings Creek Falls. But the best part of this trail was the steep returning trail along the creek. Many picturesque cascades of Kings Creek and colorful vegetation surrounding it added this trail's value in my opinion. I think I took one of the best pictures here during 5 days in Lassen NP.

Burney Falls is amazing, the trails around it decent. There is a parking lot on Lake Road which is a five minute walk up a paved slope, so the falls are easily accessible, though there are a few stairs. We parked at the parking lot off of Clark Creek Road which gave us a ten minute hike through some of the surrounding forest before reaching the lake road parking lot and down to the base of the falls. The hiking around the surrounding area is decent- but you’re really here for the falls. Since it is on the more accessible end of Oregon waterfalls, expect to see a lot of people.

Reflection Lake gets its name for a reason! Stunning view - easy hike/stroll.

No hiking, just walking from your car. A wheelchair would have noooo problem. The boiling mud pit is impressive to say the least and its only about 2 feet from the sidewalk! I saw an elderly woman at the fence near it get blasted with a burst of sulphuric steam and she had to jump back into the road to avoid getting scorched. Her glasses were completely fogged and her hair was damp. Must've smelled great. Be careful.

Quick little hike into a fantastic lava tube! Plenty of area in the pitch black. I did this alone and was lucky to be the only one in the cave. Super easy to get around (no debris or rocks to hike through or over), but the floor is a bit uneven, so keep some light lowered as you go and dont get too confident in the dark. Make sure you explore all the alcoves and keep heading back to the actual exit. Great fun, free, and so so easy!!

Great short hike! While not located in the NP, it’s worth the drive to see this unique hike! It’s a lava tube and pitch black dark once you get inside. If you have a head torch you will be fine just watch your steps as the ground is very uneven. Once out the other side you can walk around more trail above ground before going back down and through to the parking area.
Hiked on Thursday 9/6/18.

One of my favorite hikes ever!! Stunning woods with amazing waterfall! We actually climbed under the bridge for cool air & shade to have lunch & admire the views. The inclines are trickier because of the altitude but very doable.

One of my favorite trails in LNP.

Such a beautiful trail! We did the out and back trail to the falls and stopped to dip our feet in the creek just upstream. Nice and relaxing and not too difficult. My boyfriend and I finished the trail with Tevas on but ended up with pretty dirty feet. Would recommend hiking boots or running shoes.

Must see trail for NorCal.

Very easy hike to a swimming hole and beautiful waterfalls. Seems secluded which was great because of less folks. You have to drive a dirt road going here so be careful.

Very diverse terrain. Beautiful trail. It has gradual incline the whole way up to the lake and very easy hike down.

Realize that I have bad knees from an auto accident and an older so the hike down to the falls was brutal on my knees but it was worth it. I took almost 4 hrs for the whole loop. After I reached the falls, I ate lunch there and rested my knees. The steep steps up were hard but there are several places to stop....and it’s such an incredible view of the kings creek cascades that even if you don’t have asthma and bad knees like me, stop to look at these series of water falls that traverse about .5 miles. Do it

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.
