We got the spur of the moment idea to do Lassen under a nearly full moon while camping nearby along Hat Creek. Upon arriving at the trailhead, we were greated by high winds and thick clouds encircling the mountain despite clear conditions at lower elevations. We started up anyway, but turned back due to one member of the group feeling the altitude too much and also due to the lack of views we had come to enjoy. The next morning, all was clear again, but I've done Lassen many times before, so we were off to South Yolla Bolly and then home.

I'm starting to stalk Mt. Shasta...so I climbed Lassen to get a better look :) Still a little snow just to make things interesting. Fun li'l hike.... good view to effort ratio.

After an unsuccessful attempt where two sets of glasses were ripped from my face by the wind (my first introduction to blind skiing), made it on a nice day. We had the entire mountain to ourselves.

Climbed this with my dad, my highest California peak to date. There were so many butterflies everywhere along the trail that I wanted to change the name to Butterfly Mountain. I tried to swat them with a stick I was carrying, but I couldn't manage to hit any of them. We were the only ones at the summit that actually scrambled over to the highpoint. Most folks seem to stop at the overview signs and then leave.

With my son. Left trailhead at 8:05, summit at 9:45, started down at 10:30, back to car at 11:10. A real fun hike/scramble. We took the class 3 option at the summit rocks, but found a even more fun option in a notch just below the summit. Great views all around, the weather couldn't have been better, with just light winds at the summit. My son's first 10K summit.

Lots of fun...Very few people on the trail, and still a lot of snow. Awesome glissading, wish I had skis. Cool summit rock.

1:15 ascent time while admiring fellow she-hikers in high heels. Not sure what caused my dizziness.

The main park road was still closed, so I snowshoed in from the southwest gate on Saturday afternoon. I bivied under a full moon on the big flat area at 8,800 feet elevation near the Lassen Peak tourist trail, climbed the peak the next morning (April Fool's Day!) and was back at the southwest gate by 4:00 pm Sunday. Total of about 18 miles and 3,800 feet vertical. Great weekend.

Went without snowboard to recon descent. Summitted. Before going the next day with my board, snowfall prompted road closure and I had to abandon a snow shelter I spent 2 hours constructing. 2nd attempt aborted. I will be back to ride down, someday.

I viewed Lassen for four years while I went to Chico State and never climbed it. After graduating I went back and put it in its place. About time!

the trail in the summer is good and doing it in the winter is more peaceful.

My daughter, stepdaughter and I made a early morning ascent of the mountain. For Abbey, it was her third Lassen Peak Summit, and Brenna's first. It was very cold and windy, but a gorgeous day. Being so late in the season, we didn't run very many other people, and only on the way down.

Hiked up the trail and took the short scramble to the top. It was a bit chilly and the wind really kicked up a few times. Car-Car in 1:35.

My 3rd time to the summit. A nice easy hike with great views. Don't go on the weekend if you're looking for solitude.

Plenty of sunshine and light breezes made the 1+35 trek to the summit a pleasant experience. My brother-in-law and I enjoyed the friendly trail, the explanatory placards along the trail and the smiling (mostly) faces of those sharing the trail with us. This mountain has quite a history.
