It’s a stiff climb, but this trail leads to two of the prettiest places in Lassen Volcanic National Park’s high country. Paradise Meadow, a glorious spill of lush grass and colorful wildflowers, lies a bit below the halfway point of the ascent, and is a wonderful place to rest and regroup. From the meadow, steep climbing leads onto the rolling benches of Lassen’s upper reaches, where little Terrace Lake rests at the cusp of a shallow bowl. Highlights: Climb past a tumbling cataract to a spectacular meadow, then up to a small lake poised at the edge of a high basin.
