"No doubt some will find this blasphemous, but Brokeoff Mountain is arguably the best mountain climb in Lassen Volcanic National Park. Yes, Lassen Peak is higher, and yes, the summit of Lassen Peak is wonderfully dramatic, with its staggering views and evocative crater. But Brokeoff Mountain features sublime hiking through varied terrain, a thrillingly exposed traverse along its summit ridge, and views of Lassen Peak that are unparalleled. Plus, even in the height of summer, when the trail up Lassen is a human highway, you may find yourself alone on the summit of Brokeoff Mountain. Just you, and the wind, and the views, and the wonder. Highlights: From the summit of Brokeoff Mountain, views stretch in every direction: north to Lassen Peak, east and south to the foothills of the Sierra Nevada and Lake Almanor, and west across the upper Sacramento Valley."
