Definitely one to check off your list, classic Lassen beauty. Down hill all the way in, and you know what that means. must do for the hiker looking for a easy but great hike.

It was hotter than I expected. There is no snow on the trail from the base at Agnew meadows to the actual lake. It was warm at night. Yes. we have had record snow. But it has melted a lot.

No fish caught, but an easy hike in to a sandy shore line and beautiful water. Easy to walk around entire lake. Bring a hammock:)

A short trail just off the park road if you don't have much time, this also goes by Terrace Lake and continues on to Cliff lake. The section from the trailhead to Terrace is pretty steep, then the trail goes into the water at Terrace so you will have to go through the rocks on the eastern side if it's still like that. Both lakes are clear, small and shallow, and the banks are mostly grass instead of sand.
