Cameron Meadow and Grassy Creek Loop Professional Review and Guide
"Sometimes spilling in dramatic cataracts, sometimes gurgling over jumbles of river cobbles, sometimes carving a sinuous path through luminously green meadows, Grassy Creek, like an energetic young child, presents many faces. It is the focal point of this trail loop, but the route, too, is multi-faceted, weaving through dense forest, passing the southern reaches of Snag Lake, and skirting the heavily wooded shores of Horseshoe Lake. You can even catch views of Lassen Peak on the final ascent—a gratifying parting shot before you rest on the beach at the north shore of Juniper Lake. Highlights: The canyon that cradles Grassy Creek, sometimes steep and always lush with riparian plants, is a joy to travel along. Three good-sized lakes also spice the route."
