Brokeoff Mountain, Lassen National Park
5-star hike | 7 mile out-and-back | Medium | Lassen Volcanic National Park, Northern California -
Heading up to Lassen Volcanic National Park with a mind to hiking a mountain, most people would choose Lassen Peak, and for good reason. Not only do you get the bragging rights of climbing the highest and most visible mountain in the park, but you also get bonus points for hiking to the top of an active volcano. It's just that we think that Brokeoff Mountain is an even better hike.
At 9,235ft Brokeoff Mountain is the largest remnant of Mt. Tehama, an older and larger volcano which has eroded away over the past half-million years by ice ages and volcanic forces. Climbing to the summit takes you to the second highest point in the park and provides great views over many other summits, including Lassen Peak itself.
Snow covers the Lassen landscape for much of the year and some roads and trails may not be open - even in summer. Check the links below to find updated information on road closures, trail closures and campground status.
