Hike the Paradise Meadow Trail

2.7 Miles Total - 597 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by The Outbound Collective

The Paradise Meadow Trail is a 2.7 mile hike in Lassen Volcanic National Park. The trail goes through beautiful forests, and the end view is a rewarding meadow with glorious streams and a view of far-off peaks.

The Paradise Meadow Trail is both beautiful and peaceful, a paradise for hikers and trail runners. Keep your eyes peeled for mule deer and other fascinating wildlife. Bring a snack or a lunch - there are plenty of nice logs in the meadow to take a break on. 

Early in the season, you may want to consider bringing snowshoes, crampons or trekking poles to help cross sections of the trail that be still have snow.
