High level of difficulty. Good water sources for the first half, but farther apart in the end. Record heat this year. Amazing views!

No access to trailhead indicated in the app. 9 miles in from 89, unpaved, rocky, bumpy & narrow. Parked at hairpin where road is blocked off. Took hiking trail (not the road) from there. Homer Lake is 2 miles in, but trail a bit overgrown with thorny bushes. Lake is pretty.

Completed small section from Humbug Summit Rd to Humboldt Peak. Beautiful views and clear trail.

Great section with some awesome ridge line walking. Got it class of 2017.

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!

Thia is a trail great for a weekend hike also a great hike for beginners, nice view of Walker lake or Mountain Meadows Reservoir, (whatever you wish to call it) by Westwood

The first lake you encounter is Homer Lake. It plays a role in local Maidu mythology, so the Forest Service blocked the access road according to tribal leaders request. From the road end at Homer the trail continues to Hidden and Deerheart Lakes. National Forest land. Open to camping and backpacking.

The road was blocked off so we could not get to the actual starting point of the hike. We ended up walking the 2 miles in to the starting point but the peak was still a long ways off. However, there was a small lake nearby that had a trail leading to it and was a nice spot for lunch.

We hiked only a few miles of the trail. We were camping nearby and wanted to hike the trail. So glad we did! It was beautiful! Spectacular views! Along the way we ran into two couples doing the entire trail in 100 days. Amazing!

My Husband and I hiked the Ridge on Superbowl Sunday. For such a mild winter there was quite a bit of snow on the trail. It took us about 3 hours to reach the peak. Beautiful views of the valleys and surrounding mountains. We hit the peak at 3 p.m and found the weather to be warm with just a little wind. We were able to see Lake Almanor and Mountain Meadows Reservoir in Westwood clearly along with the town of Greenville. The downside of the hike was finding empty beer/soda cans and spent gunshot casings left from previous visitors. We are firm believers of "leave no trace" . I consider myself a novice hiker and found the climb to the peak easy to achieve. The road/trail was all uphill but not to daunting. We didn't need to use our walking sticks.

Interesting forestry demonstration plot at the Hwy 36 trailhead. A couple of miles north (about 1/8 mile before crossing 28N83) the trail intersects remnants of the 1870s era Dutch Hill Ditch. You can save about 4 miles of hiking and 600 ft of climb by starting your trek at Stover Spring Campground, a primitive site at N 40 deg 17.07 min, W 121 deg 20.66 min; it can be reached by a logging road that starts from Hwy 36. Domingo Spring itself is about 1/2 mile east of the north trailhead; there is also a campground and picnic area at that site, along with fresh, cold water from the spring at a convenient faucet.
