Perhaps it’s early morning: The summer sun hasn’t reached its apex, breakfast lies heavy in your belly, and you feel the need to stretch your legs before rigging up the fishing gear or climbing into the boat. Or perhaps it’s midday: You have just arrived in the park, and want to walk off the stiffness of the car. Or perhaps it’s evening: The sun, which has not quite settled below the western horizon, paints Lassen Peak with alpenglow, and you want a nice walk before you settle at the campfire, cup of tea in hand. Regardless of the motivation, the short loop trail around Summit Lake is easy and inviting. Highlights: This pleasant, short hike features gorgeous views of Lassen Peak and a rustic amphitheater.
