We climbed the trail on a sunny and breezy day in late October. There were vestiges of snow from the first snow of the winter season a few days earlier. The trailhead is easy to access even with a highway vehicle, although the road is almost entirely gravel. The trail itself is continuously uphill and becomes steeper as one nears the rim of the crater. It is not difficult, although there is occasional blowdown. There are good views of the Sacramento River valley and the mountains to the west, as well as Lassen Peak about 16 miles to the SSE, especially as one enters the brush zone. Gray Cliff, adjacent to Magee Peak, is steep but not vertical. From the peak, one can see Mt. Shasta and other mountains in the vicinity, although nearby Burney Mountain is obscured by Crater Peak. The latter can be reached by traveling along the rim.

started at the Tamarack trailhead and was a nice easy trail, even in snow.

Easy Trail to drive, hike or bike. Very scenic. The view from the lookout are amazing.

Easy, paved walk. The hike offers shade and beautiful views of Eagle lake.

Fun short hike through a dark cave. VERY IMPORTANT: BRING A FLASHLIGHT OR HEADLAMP WITH BATTERIES FULLY CHARGED. It is completely dark in the the cave. There are markers and plaques with info through out the cave. The temperature can be 15F to 20F lower than the outside temperature in the parking lot so you might want a jacket. Highly recommend this hike if your interested in volcanic geology or caves. We loved it.

A totally rad place.

Lovely paved nature walk along the lake. Well shaded and lake front aplenty. Our dogs loved it.
