Conard Meadows


8.0 miles  800' elevation gain

best season: 

1:45 drive

dogs not allowed

Many of the trees killed in the Dixie Fire

A hike that visits some of the most scenic country in the Park, but is nonetheless mostly downhill.  It requires a shuttle (provide your own) on the Main Park Road. 

You visit the sulphurous Bumpass Hell, the North Fork Feather River headwaters freshlet, pretty Cold Boiling Lake, beautiful Crumbaugh Lake, expansive Conard Meadows, and oddly dramatic Mill Creek Falls.

This hike is in Lassen National Park; owned by the public, managed by Lassen National Park. No backpacking.
