Ascent Trip Report

I left home in Berkeley at 5:30A for the drive via Chico,CA 32 and CA 89 to Lassen National Volcanic Park. I parked at the Lassen Peak TH parking area by Lake Helen, approx. 7 miles from the entrance station. From here it was a pleasant 2.5-mile hike on good trail with switchbacks. There were many others going up and coming down, including lots of children. No problems getting to the summit rockpile. Great views, some remaining snow. Given the good weather I stayed an hour before starting back, to return to the car at 3:30P.
