The phrase is hackneyed, but there’s really no better way to put it: the hike from Juniper Lake to Horseshoe Lake is short and sweet. The track is wide and impossible to lose, the climbing is moderate, the view of Lassen Peak from the saddle is lovely, and there is a restful lake at either end of the trail. It is the perfect choice for a day hike with the family or a good buddy—you can walk side by side and discuss conservation or land preservation without fear of straying from the route or missing the vistas. Highlights: Hike from one pretty lake to the next, enjoying views of Lassen Peak at the trail’s high point.
