Spectacular views of Lake Almanor, Dyer Mountain and Lassen Volcanic National Park can be found along the entire route of the nine and one-half mile Lake Almanor Recreation Trail. This multiuse trail winds through beautiful stands of stately pine, fir and incense cedar, as well as meadows, a campground, a summer home tract and several lakeshore areas that will invite you to take a swim or try your luck at fishing. The trail is ten feet wide and has paved surface.
