lasvegaswraithWhere did everyone come from?  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 21, 2010


Hiked the standard trail on a beautiful, WINDY day for great views of the area on my first visit to Mt Lassen Volcanic Park. We drove up from San Francisco so we didn't get an early start by any means (1045AM). I've read the trip reports and posts about the amount of people this mountain sees in the summer, but was still shocked. Not counting people coming down or sitting down next to the trail, I still passed between 65 and 70 people ON THE WAY UP! Considering I can't count much higher than that, I didn't count going back down, but can confirm the parking lot was nearly full.

Fortunately it was very windy at the top, so I found a few moments of solitude for the view.

Date Climbed: Aug 15, 2010


We climbed Lassen Peak and went down in 2 hours. We started to feel rain drops and static on the summit. We then went for a swim in Helen Lake and visited Bumpass Hell.

huskertriguyBeautiful, no solitude here though  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 24, 2010


Beautiful and well worth it, but this was one of those rare hikes where I threw in the iPod earplugs so I could at least pretend I had some solitude in the wilderness. There were plenty of people on the trail, and we could hear traffic from the highway as high as 3/4 of the way up. We easily finished within 4 hours, with plenty of time to explore other areas of the park.

SKIDone in an hour and 10 minutes!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 4, 2009


Ran the whole way!
Fell right in front of someone on the way down and gashed my hand, blood spurting everywhere. Awesome.

Also done this in the winter, 7-mile approach, white out on the summit. Best time ever in the snow.

Date Climbed: Sep 29, 2002


My last Cascade volcano. The drive from Portland was much longer than the climb, but a fun time was had. The park is like a mini Yellowstone.

This was my only time up Lassen, ten years ago. Did it with some friends, had a great time, must be the easiest 10,000 foot peak to climb in the states.

Date Climbed: Jul 3, 1977


This was a warmup for my brother-in-law and I before we headed up Mt Shasta the next day. There was still snow to traverse but no real problems. It was socked in on top, but intermittently there were views to be had.

Short and sweet. Lots of people at the summit, but lots of room to share the amazing views. A trip to Bumpass added the finishing touch this great day.

This was an easy climb that was supposed to be a warmup for my Shasta adventure.

I don't remember the exact climbing date.

ericwillhiteTrail Closed maybe  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 27, 2009


The trail is closed about halfway up because of "rockfall", if one were to continue, you might find the trail in excellent shape and find any rockfall hard to find. Someone was killed a week before!

20 June 2010 - Northeast Face
Started at the road closure at the Devastated Area and proceeded up the Northeast Face. Top 2000' made for fun skiing, lots of suncups below that.

14 August 2009 - Lassen Trail
Hiked the normal trail, 1:40 round trip. Apparently it was closed since a couple people got hit by rockfall a few weeks before, one person dying. Didn't see any rocks falling that day.
