This is a very pleasant trail, climbing moderately through a heavily forested area for the first mile. The trail then flattens and reaches an open area with a view of Haskell Peak. From this point there is a short steep climb for the for the final quarter-mile to Haskell Peak.

The view from the top of Haskell Peak is spectacular. Many feel it surpasses the view seen from the Sierra Buttes. Mount Lassen, Mount Shasta, Mount Rose, Sierra Buttes, and Sierra Valley provide a panoramic view. Haskell Peak also offers interesting volcanic rock formations.

Directions: Approximately five miles east of Sierra City on Highway 49, turn onto Gold Lake Highway at Bassetts Station. Proceed on Gold Lake Highway for three and seven-tenths miles and turn right at the Haskell Peak Road sign. Follow Forest Road 9 for eight and four-tenths miles. (Do not take any of the side roads along the 8.4 miles.) At this point, on your left there is a trailhead sign reading Haskell Creek Trail 11E02. There is ample parking space on both sides of the road. If you reach the intersection marked "Chapman Saddle," you have gone one and two-tenths mile too far.
