Hiked up with my 12-year-old daughter. Nice start, then she quickly decided it was too hot, too tiring, too boring. Finally bribed her with an offer to buy some Pokémon cards, which did the trick. Easy hike thereafter. She then wanted photos atop every high point on the peak, to make sure she had a picture "at the top." Of course, she still remembers this as the "Lassen Death March."

I was on a work trip in Lassen NP and it just so happened my birthday was that same week. So, as a present my supervisor let myself and the rest of my crew take half the day to climb up Lassen peak. The trail was surprisingly short and easy, and the views up top were spectacular! Afterwards my friends and I ran back down the trail. Later, after working the rest of the day, we drove into chico for some well-deserved food and beers. Not a bad b-day if you ask me!

I thought it would be a great climb with few people.
Instead, I ran into many people. The weather was good,
and the views were greater.

First time my father and I had summited Lassen Peak, and got it done on our first try! Great views from the top. It was cold and windy on the summit that day but it was still a great experience!

I love Lassen NP. Camped couple nights, had one of my most memorable campfires here. Lassen peak was a stroll, views were good; Shasta was cloudy and the valley was a full of smog. Glad to be were the air was fine.

Lassen NP is gorgeous. Took the quick & easy way up (Lassen Peak Trail). Windy as heck at the top but awesome views.

This was the last peak of our trip to the Cascades. It is a popular mountain with a nice trail and great view from the summit. We hiked to Bumpass Hell later in the day.

I always have been enchanted by the Lassen. It's one of California's best kept secrets. And it doesn't end with the park. I took my sister up the mountain. It was our first peak together. Now she wants to do Kilimanjaro. One day...

A really fun and pretty easy climb with a great view! The view was so good I felt spoiled because it was so short and accessible.

Busy trail but worth it to see those views at the summit.

The hike was fairly easy for being such a big mountain...and brokeoff was more enjoyable as my pal below said. But the views were INCREDIBLE!!

Much easier hike than I thought, great views. Not quite as fun as Brokeoff Mountain the day before.

I have wanted to climb Lassen since I was a kid. It was 70 degrees with a slight breeze in the parking lot and 55 degrees with 30mph winds on top. Fortunately, there is plenty of shelter at the summit - guess I should bring something warmer than shorts and a t-shirt next time.

My son, Curtis, and I hiked the trail from the parking lot to its end, then crossed the small ice field and scrambled the last few feet of talus on the north slope to reach the true summit.

Awesome jog/hike to the top in 48 minutes on my 48th birthday. Only 25 minutes down (even with a stop to talk) yes I flew ;-)...

Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2007


Juan and I did this to finish off a camping trip we decided to cut short by a day due to a heatwave. It was approaching the 100s as we packed up camp at Hat Creek the morning after the hike. Temps were still in the upper 60s at the Lassen Peak trailhead at 10:30 p.m. and did not cool much as we gained elevation. The summit was devoid of the strong winds I have experienced there on other walks up. We did hear a loud boom while hanging out on the summit. Turns out the Shasta County Bomb Squad had detonated a suspicious device a hiker had found near a culvert at Emerald Lake and had closed part of the road near Bumpass Hell from 6:30pm to 1:00am. A very pleasant hike after being fogged out six days earlier. Had we been a bit earlier, we would have been hotter, but would have seen several NorCal fireworks displays. The next day it was in the mid 90s as we drove by the trailhead around 3 p.m. Not much escape from the Central Valley heat for those seeking that.

Early morning hike. Very windy. Sunrise from this mountain was beautiful. Brought back 35 year old memories of when my dad took me for a hike up Lassen when I was 10 years old. It was the first mountain I ever climbed.


Lassen Peak was the very first mountain I ever climbed. I was ten years old. My father took me for hike to the summit. I don't remember much except how awesome I felt when we reached the top. Little did I realize........that this was the start of my love for climbing and all that the wilderness has to offer!
