Summary: Mill Creek Falls is the tallest waterfall in Lassen Park, and is arguably the nicest.
The hike is moderate, mostly up and down hiking all the way. The trail brings you to an overlook of the waterfall, where you get a great view of the falls.
Continue on the trail, and take a short spur to the top of the waterfall. This is a great place to have lunch and look (but not too closely) over the ledge.
The fall's flow is best in June or July, but it still flows well into August.
