Conard Meadows and Crumbaugh Lake

Mineral, California

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."
