Snowshoed this trail today. Since it has been several days since the last snowfall, there were patches of melted snow. It was very scenic for most part but almost lost at last quarter of the trail. Since the lake is frozen, we couldn't tell where the trail is that we had to make a detour just to make sure we are avoiding the frozen water. We ended up at the campground parking but we somehow was able to get back on the trail.

Hiked in September 2018. Waterfalls were pretty but the trail is busy, so not the choice if you want some solitude. The railing and viewing areas at the end were a little too civilized for me.

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.

I loved this trail. Very well maintained and there were informational signs (Ecology, geology facts) at most of the switchbacks. There was snow at the end of the trail; you had to cross it to get to the peak, but it was easy. Would definitely do this again. I was there in August 2018 and it was smoky, you could just barely see the top of Mount Shasta peaking out from a layer of smoke.

Very nice hike! Not to hard and a beautiful view of the park and the lakes at the top!

Great easy hike four our family. We have four kids ranging from age 11 years old to five months old. Everybody loved it. Trail walks right along the side of the lake. Beautiful views of lake and mt lassen

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!

Definitely MUCH FURTHER than 4.4 miles - Fitbit tracked at 7.5 miles round trip. Still a great hike, and we got to do the moonlight experience tonight, which was spectacular! definitely tough, with loads of switchbacks buy big rewards the higher you climb!

Third time I’ve climbed this. This time Thursday oct 11. Nice and chilly morning. Parking lot mostly empty. Saw three people on summit. Stayed up there for a half hour. Views were very good. The trail is vastly improved from my last trip up here which was 11 years ago. At 67 years old I expected a tough climb. The last half mile I had to stop about seven times. As I was starting my descent I walked past about thirty kids and a few adults climbing up. My whole trip up and down was about three and a half hours. Looking forward to climbing brokeoff mountain this coming Thursday. This good weather won’t last much longer

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.

Tough. Windy. Spectacular. Worth every step!

Same deal; about .4mi from devils kitchen encountered mama and baby brown bear. Turned back. Up to that point. Easy trail. Preferred if it wasn’t a horse trail also. Nice meadow, creek. Still a good sweat today.

This was my first solo hike! I've been wanting to say that I've hiked Mt. Lassen and now I can. However, it is HARD. I kept seeing reviews about how much harder and better Brokeoff Mountain is, so I went into falsely thinking that meant this trail was a lot easier. I was wrong! It was a gorgeous day and I got started about 10:30 am on a Sunday and didn't see anyone for over an hour on the trail. My legs burned, my chest burned, and it was a chilly 35º, and probably even just barely freezing at the top. I had to stop many times to catch my breath and give my legs a break. The views were magnificent, the sounds of nature were amazing, and being able to sit up on the true summit and breathe it all in was magical. I expected more wind based on reviews, but I got really lucky and the wind didn't pick up until on the way down. It was so clear that you could see all the way to Shasta, which is amazing after a summer full of fires. Steep, elevated, and cold, but breathtaking.

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.

An awesome hike. Makes the legs burn. I started a little after 8am. Only a few other folks on the trail. On the way down around 10am there were lots of people coming up. It's a narrow trail. Windy. Great views.

This was the first mountain that I have ever climbed and it was so cool sitting at the summit it felt like we were on top the world. It’s rated hard but I’m 65 years old and I made it so if you’re in decent shape climb and enjoy the view at the top.

So glad I can cross my first mountain peak trail off my bucket list. I wasn’t the fastest but I did get to the top. Sunshine and wind made for a cool start, but soon warmed up. I took plenty of rest breaks on the way up. Beautiful views and the trail was busy today as it was National Park Day. The last bit was the most challenging as the boulders were a bit more challenging with many ways to the top. Go prepared for a hike with some good shoes, appropriate clothing, some water and a snack so you can enjoy your day!

Did this hike yesterday and it was a decent challenge. Great views all the way and especially at the summit. The entire park is beautiful.

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.
