Description

This easy trail winds gently around Manzanita Lake and is an ideal choice for families or others unable to navigate over difficult terrain. Well shaded by looming Jeffrey pines and bordered by lush willows, this trail offers a welcomed respite from the heat of the day. As the trail wanders along the shoreline numerous openings offer runners an opportunity to spot ducks, geese and the occasional muskrat and beaver.

The surrounding forest also offers birdwatchers and wildlife enthusiasts opportunities to catch glimpses of woodpeckers and deer. The trail is perhaps best known for its spectacular views of Lassen Peak and Chaos Crags which are best viewed in the morning. The trail circles the lake and may be picked up at any point including a spur trail from Loomis Museum and the Manzanita Lake picnic area.
