Originally added by Michael Fricke

A short hike to the top of a bluff that gives you great views of Lava Beds National Monument and Mt. Shasta

Start from the parking lot just past the entrance booth at the Lava Beds National Monument. It is a straight forward hike up to the top of the bluff about .75 miles. Great views of the lava flows and surrounding mountains. It is a great place to view the sunset behind Mt. Shasta from the top.
