This classic Cascade hike climbs through remote forest up to Everett and Magee Lakes, two of the prettiest lakes in the California Cascades. Hikers looking for a longer outing can continue farther as the trail leads into the crater of an ancient volcano and then climbs to a peak on the crater rim, where a marvelous view awaits. Just north of the Lassen area, a number of tall, extinct volcanoes line the crest of the Cascades as the range extends north toward Mount Shasta. The tallest and most impressive is preserved in the Thousand Lakes Wilderness, a compact 16,582-acre wildland. Often referred to as the Thousand Lakes Volcano, this tall peak boasts an impressive crater that was breached by glaciers. These large sheets of ice flowed east and excavated the Thousand Lakes Valley. While not having nearly as many lakes as the name implies, the valley does have eleven named lakes and a seemingly limitless number of small, shallow ponds.
