Great trail with great views. It got windy as we got to the top but the temperature was not to bad.

One of the most gorgeous trails I’ve done. The meadow was absolutely stunning with the water running through it. The views of the valley and mountains from the peak are breath taking and the falls were spectacular to look at and cool off in. We hiked it with our one year old just fine. We saw people of all ages out on the trail. Took the alternate route (trail) on way back and we were so glad we did; it kept getting better and better. There was a cool stone walkway and stairs (just gorgeous)! Wish I knew how to post pictures. Definitely worth the drive. We left feeling refreshed!

Fun hike, lots of short switchbacks.
Tons of beautiful butterflies and some snow at the top.

Guys!! The Views were AMAZING. It's a tough climb up (especially if you do the Cinder cone the day before with zero hours of sleep after a 10 hour drive
...haha) but very doable. It's worth it.

Great hike just to many people.

Hiked earlier today. Absolutely beautiful. The scenery with all of the blue lakes is breathtaking. Once you reach the summit there are hundreds of migrating butterflies. Absolutely loved it

Beautiful hike with breathtaking views the whole way, especially half way. There were thousands of migrating butterflies swarming the peak. Windy at the top. Still snow in July. Definitely recommend!

beautiful place to go.

Great hike and the views were awesome! Had some snow in a few different places near the top. Suggest leaving early as there is no shade on the hike.

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.

Great views and good workout. Saw deer early in the morning as we walked down the trail to the falls.

Best done early in the day when it is cooler and less people are hiking.

Great views. There was still some snow/ice on a steep drop off. Took 2 hrs for the complete hike and 15 mins at the top.

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

SOOOO WINDY. We came here 6/30 and I misread the forecast between where we’re staying and weather at Lassen. It was 65deg which was great for the hike. However, in various parts of the hike, it was ridiculously windy (and cold) as you get higher up the mountain.

BRING WARM LAYERS if you plan to do this hike.

Hiking poles are optional but not mandatory.

There was indeed a few snow slushy spots, but we got through it just fine.

We initially saw folks with ski gear and I almost thought we weren’t prepared. Checked in with someone who just finished the hike and they reassured us it was doable with what we had.

Enjoy!

This trail is lovely, very busy. We saw a lot of people on the trail with no water who looked very overheated. It's a short trail but has some steep and rocky points and it was very warm. Take lots of water.
The falls are stunning and definitely worth the hike.

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!!!

loved middle creek falls!

Astonishing views and lots of elevation gain. Still icy on one really steep hillside. Be very careful! Highly recommended hike!
