Four and a half mile out and back hike from the Warner Valley area of Lassen Volcanic National Park to the Devils Kitchen.
It's three quarters of a mile round Lake Helen, not really worth doing unless you're waiting for someone to finish paddling...
Third time lucky - Bumpass Hell was open for my third trip to Lassen Volcanic National Park. It's a three mile out and back with great views and of course a whole bunch of geothermal features at the end. The trail winds gently up to Bumpass Hell where there is a steep and surprisingly slippery descent (and an alternate route back up for a very small loop at the end of the trail). Very glad to have finally hiked it.

A storm builds over Lassen Peak. Filmed from Lake Helen in Lassen Volcanic National Park.
A timelapse two ways shot from the Manzanita Lake campground at Lassen Volcanic National Park (the second time I've visited and the second time that Bumpass Hell has been closed). First a regular 4K timelapse looking up from the campsite:
The second version is the same footage in HD where each frame is the cumulative maximum pixel value of all the frames up to the current frame (so it builds in star trails as the video runs):
