Terrace Lake to Summit Lake

Terrace Lake to Summit Lake Professional Review and Guide

"The trail between Terrace Lake and Summit Lake is a wonderful and easy trek through some of the most accessible “off the beaten path” terrain in the park. The route takes you past Terrace and Shadow Lakes, with their marvelous views of Lassen Peak, down to secluded Cliff Lake, then on a rolling descent to the welcoming shores of Summit Lake. This route is most often done with a shuttle. If you want to make this a roundtrip journey, start at Summit Lake so you walk downhill on the return. Highlights: Enjoy great views of the northern reaches of Lassen Volcanic National Park as you descend from one spectacular lake to another."
