Grassy Swale
loop

CHALLENGING DAY HIKE


13.4 miles  1,450' elevation gain

best season: 
Aug-Oct
 


1:55 drive

dogs not allowed



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, and water-blessed.

Twin and Swan Lakes aren't too bad either :-)
