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.
Uneventful climb from the parking lot. Great views.
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.
I've hiked this peak 3X. This time I was up with Mel from England. We both had a great time under perfect conditions. I'd say there was still over 10 feet of snow in the parking area piled up.
Gropu trip from UCSB all over california. Nice snowball fight on the summit ridge.
I've climbed this a couple of times. Great views if the summit is clear.
Woke up at 3am and left for Lassen at about 4:15am. Arrived at trailhead at around 9am, slowed by road construction. Up and down in about 3 hours. Very pleasant climb with some pretty nice views. Unfortunately it was a little hazy from some fires in the distance so I couldn't see Shasta.
Quick hike up the trail after a thunderstorm
After aborting our plans to visit a few p2ks in the N coast ranges due to wildfires, we headed over to Lassen and took the trail up for some nice sunset views.
SUMMITED IN THE AFTERNOON. NOT TOO CROWDED. MAYBE 12 PEOPLE ON SUMMIT AREA. A LITTLE HAZY FROM FIRES
2 hours roundtrip from the parking lot. Kind of crowded.
Other then the snowfield at the bottom there was only one small patch of snow on the way up.
Great day for a climb. My 4th time up but the 1st in about 12 years. Still had some snow on parts of the trail. But not enough to worry about. Great views of the park. Shasta was kinda hazy but the central valley looked like a smog bowl. While Lassen is not the the biggest peak in the Cascades, I had forgotten just how big this mountain is.
Very easy and short hike, but still very snowy for July and with beautiful landscapes
Got to come back to ski here some day.
Wow. Skied some very impressive sun cups and runnels from the top to the bottom. South East face snow was hammered but one can't complain when skiing in July. Beats walking.
Wanted to hit the top of this one after I saw it from Shasta a few years back. Very easy hike and enough snow for a little glissade action.
