The best hike in the Park?  Yes, if you like a huge climb to a spectacular mountaintop that still isn't the biggest mountain.  The view from Brokeoff may be better than that from Lassen Peak, since you can't actually see Lassen Peak very well when you are on it.

For a peak climb, this hike does particularly well with water features.  Brokeoff Creek is near the trail up to its origin springs halfway up the mountain.  Brokeoff Springs have fresh and delicious water.

This is the biggest elevation gain of any of our hikes, but the trail is well-graded and maintained.  The view from the top is splendid and far-ranging.
