Lassen is a beautiful and quiet National Park. Climbing Lassen Peak gives you the best panoramas of the park. We started the steady climb at daybreak to avoid the heat (and people). It took just under 2 hours to get to the top. With only 3 people ahead of us, we felt like we had the volcano to ourselves. As... More

We went there during the Thanksgiving break. Ride itself was wonderful. Do not miss the 20 minute video at the visitor center. You will get to appreciate the place better. Have good clothing and boots to hike around nd protect you from the snow. We weren't fully prepared with that. A fiery beauty to behold there and on the way... More

Depending on what part of Mt. Lassen you visit you might want to be sure you have on good hiking shoes/boots! It is truly a wonderful area to experience.

My husband and I hiked to the top on a gorgeous clear October morning. The altitude slowed me down, but the trail was in great shape and the views were well worth it at the top! Hiking poles came in handy,

We just rode through the park seeing the sight. We did not have time to hike any of the trails. We did stop and get out to look at the boiling mud pots.

We visited during the shoulder season, between the heat of summer, and when it closes in winter. Thus, more enjoyable, no crowds, easily accessible. Hiking the main trail into the volcano is easy, but a 10 on the reward when you get to it (perhaps 45 minute) and the views during the walk in. Can do in sneakers or shoes... More

We took a drive north on a weekend trip, specifically to visit this park. Totally worth it! Absolutely fell in love with this park. We entered through the south entrance and didn't make it up the road all the way to the north entrance on either day that we visited, but that just gives us another reason to go back.... More

All types of volcanos are represented in the park. You can see forests, lakes and hot springs all in close proximity. educational and beautiful. The hike up Mount Lassen is on a wide groomed trail on a very even grade. The views are spectacular!
