    super windy and not necessarily fun since the hike is pretty much dry and rocky the entire time. nice to know you climbed the highest mountain in the park though!

    I think the reward for the this hike is extremely high for how easy it is. The trail is wide, easy and not very long at all. You pass through streams and a nice waterfall.

    We went Forth of July weekend while the snow was all melting and it made the lake glorious. Waterfalls were cascading down the mountainside with mighty roars.

    I hope that the park service extends the viewing platform in the future over to the left a bit. It is pretty small and can get pretty cramped quickly.

    Great Hike with gorgeous views. Park at Juniper Campground. If you walk though the campground, you will start at the deer flat trail head, which has a bunch of ups and downs in the beginning, and a bunch of steep climbs 3/4 of the way to the summit. Once you get to the top, you have a fast descent back to the parking lot.

    If you go via the Juniper Trail at the immediate right of the parking lot, you'll have a quick steep climb to the top, with a long, slow decent, and then the various ups and downs.

    I really liked this hike. Some of the steep climbs are pretty rough, so you better be in shape!

    The best hike in Northern CA, and one of my favorite hikes of all time. If you are in good shape, it shouldn't be a problem, but you should definitely be prepared. Wear good hiking shoes as the trail is full of rocks. You even have to do some lightweight mountaineering at the end.

    For the love of God, start this trail early. We arrived at 9am on a Saturday and the parking lot was filled with people. The trail is pretty narrow at points, so it was very annoying when you spend lots of time leap-frogging over people. If I knew, I would have tried getting there even earlier.

    The scenery is absolutely breaktaking, and the reward at the end is the best that I've seen yet. You must make it to the highest point of the summit to see a 360 degree view of the Tahoe area. It's incredible and an almost religious experience.

    This was my favorite hike in all of Lassen National Park. It is pretty difficult, but not very long. You are basically walking over tiny bits of loose gravel and it really feels like you are walking on sand. When you get to the actual volcano, it doesn't look very high or difficult at first, but the incline is so steep, and the ground is so loose that it becomes very hard, very quickly. Despite this, the view at the top is incredible. For one thing, there is is badass giant crater staring at your, and it was the first time in my life that I've ever seen one up close and personal. The painted dunes below you are breathtaking, and the fantastic lava beds that are behind them are soooo awesome. They really show you the destructive nature of a volcano. It was like looking at geological history right in the face. I LOVED this hike. Everyone should do it!
