Beautiful and peaceful! A wonderful hike in a volcanic environment. Saw three Mule Deer, a Dark Eyed Junco, and a Steller's Jay whilst hiking around 11A. It was nice to take in the waterfall and creek along the way - some boiling and all! Bring a snack or lunch as there are some nice logs to sit and take in the view. :-)

great hike... pretty steep in places. I had an 8 year old and a 2 year old on my back but it was doable...well worth the climb

Paradise Meadow was stunning. Still mostly snow covered. Trail was a bit challenging to stay on due to snow and fallen trees, but still well worth the effort.

Hiked this on 6/18/17, Lots of snow after halfway up. Snowshoes or crampons would have been nice, or at least a ski pole. Great temps, would love to go when there is less snow to see the meadows.

This is a great hike in early June. Main road was still closed but we walked in on the road to the trailhead. There was still snow about halfway up so if you go at this time of year it is recommended to wear good hiking boots. Beautiful trail with a lot of rushing water from snowmelt. Highly recommended!

The hike goes through some beautiful pieces of forest along the way and then you are rewarded at the end with a grand view of the meadow with running streams going through it.

This one's right in the middle of Lassen NP and easy to get to. It's a straightforward jaunt through the forest until you get to a big grassy meadow, surrounded by hills, with a stream running through it; it's one of those trails that deserves it's name.
