Great views and varied terrain. Highly recommend!

The initial accent is not "easy".

This trail is beautiful. The first stretch in Lassen NP really shows the devastation of forest fires. Few things are growing and it has been 4 years. Thanks to all the trail maintainers out there!

OMG. Thanks to nature my family and I had a blast. This was all of our first time hiking. The trails were beautifully maintained and was an amazing place to hike with dogs and kids. We have a large family of 5 and we brought our 2 hyper dogs (off leash) and my 3 young children. The trails were very easily visible to see everyone in our group and it was perfect for the kids and dogs to roam and run. The trail was wide enough and very comfortable for people who are not comfortable with the heights. There were quite a few people and other dogs as well as kids but everyone was extremely friendly and patient when we were slacking and not moving fast enough. In some spots there were a few creeks that you either had to walk through or on rocks to get over but it is extremely safe for everyone. It was gorgeous and absolutely breathtaking. I did add some pictures of the paths and views. There are tons of butterflies and toward the end there were a small family of deer. There were tons of signs so you don't get lost and it gives you many options on where to go. I would highly recommend anyone wanting to do this hike. By the way there were tons of elderly people so my point is, if they can do it so can you. My husband and I are also obese and it was perfect for us too

Very nice trek! Beautiful scenery. Quite a few other people, but not too bad.

Nice trail and lots to see. Not too bad of a hike and well worth the trip. The access road to Silver Lake could definitely use some maintenance. Lots of ruts and rocks. No ok for small cars with no clearance. When you reach Gold lake I advise to camp around the east side of the lake as you won't be bothered by day hikers coming up from the car campgrounds at Silver Lake. All in all a good trip

Some shade, but wear sun screen.
