  • Easy to stop there and have a quick look. It's a great view, but you also get great views from other hikes in the area.  more »
  • Drive, hike, bike into this awesome location. Picnic tables and restrooms are onsite. The Pacific Crest Trail passes through as well. Learn all about the mountains and volcanic activity in the area...  more »
  • This is just one of those Wide Open Spaces full of History one can find on a road trip in California. You drive up the side of the mountain and find this wonderful Vista Point. The plaques in place tell you the history of what you're looking at, the breeze is nice, and you get a Horizon spanning View of Mount Lassen and Mount Shasta in the distance with all the beautiful points of the volcanic Scenic byway along the way. There are picnic tables if you'd like to enjoy a quick repast on your road trip or just sit down and enjoy the view. There's also a public pit toilet there for anyone needing relief. Worth a the stop if you've never been here before.
  • In addition to being a great scenic byway on CA44, there is very nice camping here! Thus was my attraction to the area in mid August 2017 as I was winding my way toward Oregon to view the total solar eclipse of that month. I was interested in this area because of the very good dark skies. Hat Creek Rim did not disappoint. Only one or two other campers there made this one of those peaceful spots that lovers of wilderness dream about. I'll be back to this campsite on future visits to the Lassen area.
