Description

The trail begins near the southwest entrance to the park. It ascends from the park road to the top of Brokeoff Mountain, a remnant of Brokeoff Volcano. The first half of the trail is mainly in forest and is near a stream in places. The last half is more exposed with occasional trees and magnificent views in every direction. Areas of snow can cover parts of the trail into mid-summer. Aside from the scenery, the trail offers wildflowers and wildlife. Forest Lake is near the trail about one-third of the way up.

Views include Lassen Peak, Mount Harknes, Mount Shasta, the upper Sacramento Valley and Coast Range, Lake Almanor and more. At the top, you look almost straight down at the Kohm-Ya-Mah-Nee Visitor Center.

Flora & Fauna

Depending on the time of the season, one can see lupines, balsam root, leopard lilies and penstemons to name a few wildflowers. Look for birds, deer, and possibly a black bear in the wooded sections. A pika may be seen at the higher elevations.
