Visited Lassen Volcanic National Park for my birthday this year...loved every minute of it. Manzanita Lake has a great "easy trail" around it that most anyone can do and the views are sometimes "breath taking"...bring water and a camera and you'll be good!

We stopped here to rent a canoe for an hour to paddle around the lake. It was not expensive and was a lot of fun.

The trail that leads around Manzanita Lake is pretty flat and easily navigated by even the most novice hikers. It’s a really fun trail to snowshoe or cross country ski around in the winter. At 5890’ elevation, pace yourself as the altitude can be challenging,...More

Beautiful Lake at the northern entrance to Lassen Volcanic Park. The water was so still it acted as a mirror with the beautiful sky and mountain in the background.
