Manzanita Lake Hiking Trail at Lassen Park

Posted May 30th 2018

This easy trail in Lassen Volcanic National Park winds gently around Manzanita Lake and is an ideal choice for families or others unable to hike on difficult terrain. Well shaded by looming Jeffrey pines and bordered by lush willows, this trail offers a welcomed respite from the heat of the day. As the trail wanders along the shoreline numerous openings offer hikers an opportunity to spot ducks, geese and the occasional muskrat and beaver. The surrounding forest also offers birdwatchers and wildlife enthusiasts opportunities to catch glimpses of woodpeckers and deer. The trail is perhaps best known for its spectacular views of Lassen Peak and Chaos Crags which are best viewed in the morning. 


The trail circles the lake and may be picked up at any point including a spur trail from Loomis Museum and the Manzanita Lake picnic area.

Start: Manzanita Lake Picnic Area  
Round Trip Distance: 1.5 miles  
Round Trip Time: 1-2 hours  
Elevation: 5,890 ft  
Elevation Change: Negligible  

Lassen Park Telephone (530) 595-4480
