At 2.5 miles and 2000 feet elevation gain this is a great summit to climb. Sunrise on the peak was sensational.

We stopped first at the mineral lodge to pick water and some food. There r benches near the beautiful lakes inside the national park. We stopped at the lake Helen first , had our lunch and spent abt an hr trying to soak in the breathtaking view. It was beyond words! After that we started our Bumpass Hell hike and... More

You have to take the hike to Bumpass Hell. The trail is a 3 mile loop. On the weekends, the parking lot can get full, but don't fret, you can park on the side of the road. I suggest that you park down the hill next to Lake Helen and walk up the slope that leads to the trail. This... More

This was a very winding road with not much of a payoff. We were looking forward to seeing more varied landscape than we did. The drive to the south entrance seemed to be the best part, as was the drive out to through the north entrance and the view of Mt Shasta.

For an underused National Park I thought this park should be right up there with the likes of Yosemite Crater and the Grand Canyon! The scenery is stunning! The park is very clean and well staffed with Rangers for not being one of the more popular parks! I thought the views at this park compared to some of the most... More

The visitor center is recently renovated and has some good exhibits on volcanos and photos of Mount Lassen erupting. Buy the guidebook at the visitor center if you plan to drive through the park, but be aware that the some of the stops are not well-marked. If you want to hike, probably best to allow 2 days here. Just hiking... More

The hike into this place is worth every single footstep. We thought it was more amazing than the mud pots in Yellowstone.

We were only visiting the park on our way to Crater Lake from Chester CA. However it was breathtaking. A wonderful Lodge at the ranger station, full of facts and figures - a small cafe and shop. We drove through the park and took in the scenery, stopping at many places just to drink in the views and take some... More

A beautiful, quiet, clean and congenial camping experience (with the best camp store setup anywhere we've been). This is one of the least visited National Parks. We plan to return at the next opportunity.

We enjoyed the amazing scenery, roads were well maintained, hikes were clearly marked and it wasn't crowded. The people at the visitor's center were especially helpful.
