There are 2 main falls hikes in Lassen and this is the shorter of the two. The original hike trail has been shut down for several years since it was cut out of the precipice and can't be stabilized and as a result there is...More

Fair warning......the usual trail is closed. A seemingly easy hike turned into a strenuous hike. Due to trail maintenance, we were diverted to an alternate route. There were patches of snow/ice and a lot of mud. We crossed several unavoidable brooks, getting our hiking boots...More
