Join Tracy Salcedo, author of Hiking Lassen Volcanic
National Park, this summer for a walk-and-talk hike around Manzanita Lake.
This easy trail winds
gently around Manzanita Lake and is an ideal choice for families or
others unable to hike on difficult terrain. Well shaded by looming Jeffrey
pines and bordered by lush willows, this trail offers a welcomed respite from
the heat of the day. As the trail wanders along the shoreline numerous openings
offer hikers an opportunity to spot ducks, geese and the occasional muskrat and
beaver. The surrounding forest also offers birdwatchers and wildlife
enthusiasts opportunities to catch glimpses of woodpeckers and deer.
Salcedo will share her insights into best hikes
and best hiking practices in the park. The hike is limited to 20 participants.
Cost is $10 and you can sign up online at lassenassociation.org or call 530.595.4464. Kids under 10 are free.
* Please note that pets are not permitted on trail
What to Bring
Bring a comfortable walking shoes, sunscreen, water and a snack
and a camera if you would like.
