Conard Meadows and Crumbaugh Lake Professional Review and Guide
"When bathed in sharp sunlight, the lush grass of Conard Meadows glows like an incandescent bulb through a green glass shade. It shines in direct contrast to the darker green of the surrounding forest, and complements perfectly the deep blue of the alpine sky. The meadows’ overseer, 8,204-foot Mount Conard, guards the southeastern borders of the meadows. Both meadows and mountain are named for Arthur Conard, a resident of Red Bluff who was instrumental in the movement that led to the preservation of Lassen country as a national park. Highlights: Quiet, colorful Conard Meadows is a restful destination between raucous Mill Creek Falls and peaceful Crumbaugh Lake."
