White out hide the true summit for a couple minutes, then revealed itself!

It was a beautiful winter day with lots of sun and partly cloudy. The views of the winter landscape, snow-capped peaks, and distant lakes was wonderful.



The days of this 3-day trip were all really warm for this time of year where a long-sleeve t-shirt was enough when hiking up vigorously. Near the summit plateau, the wind was much higher and a change to full winter shell and winter accessories (hat, gloves, etc.) were needed.



The summit was a beautiful place to be in winter and the view of Shasta 60 miles to the Northwest was superb. Could have spent a lot of time at the summit, but sitting in the cold and wind wasn't conducive. Great place to be in winter!

A quick hike, with awesome views of all of Northern Cali, extending all the way to Shasta.

Daughter Abbey and I summitted Lassen Peak once again (her second time, my third). Enjoyed a beautiful and fairly clear day, with good views everywhere. We ran into a gentleman who is training for Kilimanjaro (leaving next week), and had an enjoyable conversation with him as well. Fresh snow in many parts of the park, including a few places on the trail.

Someone else here commented on the trail looking like a school field trip. Well, there literally was a school field trip on the trail that day (some high school near Eureka) - and covering the entire summit as well. Not the place to seek solitude, but great for views and a nice training hike.

I was a bit tired from attempting Shasta (got to about 10,500') the day before but coudn't resist this one. Pretty much ran the whole thing - 42 min. up and 24 down. Spent an hour at the summit looking around - what a strange summit area!

Climbed with my eight year old daughter Abbey... the promise of a cheeseburger at the Lassen Chalet was enough to get her all the way to the summit. Had a great hike, and it was fun to be back at the top again!

After a 3 day backpacking trip we couldn't resist the quick hike to the summit. About 90 minutes up, 45 minutes down. Nice view of the smoke from the fire burning inside the park. There were enough people on the summit to have a small town meeting....

Much easier than i was expecting. First on the trail at 6am. The summit was beautiful. Great views of Shasta and Lake Almanor. Couldn't believe all the people headed up on our way down. Lots of skiers! Snow was much softer/safer on way down. To the dude in the "UtilaKilt"...you're a stud pal.

warm-up for Agassiz - 90 minutes to summit - lots of snow on the way up and we scrambled a little at the top. I seriously recommend you start no later than 6:30 AM - after that it turns into a grade-school field trip.

Easy effort climb; brutal winds and cold. Felt like March on Sonora Pass all over again. I wished I'd brought my gortex gloves to fend off frostbite. CA COHP #20. Trail and summit were entirely empty -- 1/2 from the early hour (done by 8:30am) and half from the dense overcast cloud system that stretched all the way to Shasta and beyond.

Nice hike, with good views of Shasta 100 miles to the north poking out through the top of the clouds...

Shasta on Saturday, Eddy on Sunday, Lassen on Monday. Three great places to view everywhere from. However, as Bob mentioned, it is not a lonely trail. Tons of people showed up and overpopulated the summit. If they'd put a McD's up there, they'd make some big bucks. Still, nice to get the highpoint of Shasta county with fellow summitposter Bob Bolton.

Dean Molen and I did Lassen as the last summit of our Northern California trip, which also included Shasta and Eddy. Nice day, and the hordes were amazing, although expected.

All I can say is that I've never seen that many people on a trail. It was not suprising how many idiots were up there - hiking off trail, throwing rocks at the chipmunks, just dropping trash where-ever. Its sad because it is a nice little hike.

Decided to hit Lassen as a warmup for Shasta. Started up the trail then put on the crampons and headed up the bowl on the SE side. Snow was perfect for crampons and for glissading. Had a fantastic glissade down the bowl then cut around to the South side for one more glissade almost to the parking lot. What a blast! There were quite a few boarders and skiers having fun as well. Weather was awesome.
