Blue Lake Canyon is the most remote side of Lassen Park.  A non-maintained trail goes up Blue Canyon inside the Park, then peters out short of highly scenic Blue Lake.

A easy 4WD route follows the canyon up to the National Forest/National Park boundary and the start of the trail.  There are nice campsites on either end, near North Fork Bailey Creek.

Creek water, no toilets, no fee.  Campfire permit required.
