An excellent long loop hike through varied terrain.
Two fords of the largest creek
along the Lassen hikes provide some excitement, but be
careful, flowing water can be dangerous. The crossing
at the 3-mile point is probably the harder one, and gives
you a chance to turn back if the water is too high.
The namesake Grassy Swale is
a special treat to Pacific Crest Trail hikers more accustom
to dry ridges and stiff climbs, it is lovely, green, gentle,
Twin and Swan Lakes aren't
too bad either :-)
