Hwy 89 is the route to take. It goes right through Lassen and onto Mt. Shasta. Make sure you stop and see Burney Falls which is right on your route.

Super is right. Take hwy 36 to the SW entrance. Travel through the park and take a right toward Old Station/Burney Falls. If you're a fan of pulled pork sandwiches J J's at Old Station makes the best. They stop cooking at 2-2:30.

Yes, and staying in Chester. So

36 to the SW entrance is the best route--30 mins vs 1 hour + no backtracking in the park.

Oh. I'm not sure. I've gathered Tahoe to Chester to Lassen to MtShasta. I don't know their interests or starting and finishing points. It seems they have been planning for a long time.
