Lassen 2007 Trip

Day 4 of 4

Sunday, July 29th
Terrace and Shadow Lakes

On getaway date, we packed up our camp and left around 10:30am. We then drove along the main park road for the first time on this trip. One of the reasons I'd put it off until the weekend was that there is road construction ongoing. There are warnings that there can be delays up to 30 minutes. I figured Sunday was my best chance of avoiding that, and it seemed to work, as we coasted on through past the Devastated Area, past Summit Lake (where I'd camped on my previous trip), Kings Creek, and on to the trailhead for Terrace Lake. From there, we hiked to Shadow Lake.

After the hike, we continued along the park road. We pulled into the parking lot for the Lassen Peak trailhead, where there was a temporary store and gift shop set up in the lot. The old Lassen Chalet at the southwest park entrance was torn down awhile back; they're building a new visitor's center there. In the meantime, there's a temporary structure at the Lassen Peak trailhead. Here, we enjoyed another ice cream before heading back to the Bay Area. We exited the park through the Southwest entrance, took Highway 89, then turned right onto Highway 36 to head back to Red Bluff and I-5. In all, it again took about 4 1/2 hours of driving to return.
