Snowshoed this trail today. Luckily we (4 of us) met a guy after we snowshoed around Manzanita Lake. He introduced us to the trail. Glad he did. It was great for snowshoeing. We'll definitely snowshoe this again, and hike it.

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

Very scenic, easy short trail, nice view of Lassen. We arrived at Manzanita campground around 3 and did not have much time to go far so we decided to stroll around the lake. I am glad we did. The lake was very beautiful. I could take some nice photos of Lassen front the lake.

beautiful hike

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

Great hike! Like every trail in LVNP this one was beautiful. Easy hike around the lake. The trail is easy to follow and lots of places to sit and have a snack while enjoying the views! One part does get close to the road coming into the park but don’t let that stop you.

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.

Took my two 7 year olds around the lake while my wife and other kids hung out at the picnic area. Lots of shade, an easy walk for the boys. Ducks, geese, deer, squirrels, as well as many other birds along the way. Great for a leisurely stroll! We went July 2018.

This is a enjoyable walk around the lake. Lots of shade and the kids can toss stones in the lake and enjoy the birds and ground squirrels. Even more fun is to bring a small floaty and laze around on the lake. They rent them there too. Gets cold after October.

Loved this hike. Very flat and great views of this pristine lake

Such and amazing view and close to my campground. The reflection off the lake of lassen peak was so beautiful! Manzanita campground was crowded but also has some awesome amenities and located in such a great spot! I loved this little loop you don’t even have to do the whole thing you could just walk around find the perfect view and chill! Also stayed around end of July 2017

Enjoyed the trail it is always calming to be around the waters edge.

Peaceful walk even if there was smoke in the air from a fire on the backside of Lassen. Maybe next time we might try kayaking.

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.

Easy and beautiful

No actual trail, a short walk from the parking lot gets you up close with the mudpots. Educational experience for the kids and adults too. Due to Bumpass Hell being closed for repairs this short walk has a great alternative to seeing the mudpots in the area. Easy enough for kids and even witnessed a person in a wheelchair doing the walkway. The sulfur smell isn’t as bad as some say and didn’t bother me, but bothered my husband. Great short walk and would definitely return again in the future

I had an outstanding time at Lassen. There were only a handful of people in the park it seemed all morning. So peaceful! I decided to take a lap around the lake and get some shots after I finished Mill Creek

Tons of bugs on this easy hike around the lake but you right by water so it’s to be expected. Definitely make sure you were bug deterrent before going. Lake was peaceful and beautiful with ducks floating all over and some people fishing of the side and on the lake. Super easy hike. More for picture moments than anything. Lassen Peak was right behind still with smoke on its peak and looked beautiful reflecting off the water.

We visited Lassen on a beautiful clear day and walked down to Manzanita Lake from the Visitor Center. The views of Lassen Peak are spectacular from the lake, it's quiet and you can hear fish jump out of the water. There were fisherman and campers enjoying the cool breeze off the water on an otherwise pretty hot day. The hike around the lake is easy and maybe a three, but adding the views, it's a four.
