The hot springs and other thermal feature will absolute entrance you. You would have to be dead to be unimpressed with Lassen and its strange features.

I explored Lassen NP for three days in August 2013. I've been to Yellowstone, Yosemite, Glacier, Redwood, Rainer, Crater Lake, Sequoia/Kings Canyon, Grand Canyon, and more. I have to say I was surprised by how much this NP has to offer. It has excellent hiking mountains, excellent camping facilities, and interesting geology. I thoroughly enjoyed my hike up Broke Off...

We visited Emarald lake - very beautiful lake. it lives up to its name. Lake henry - nice lake view Bump pass hell -you have to take a... More

How do you hide a mountain, or should I say an active volcano. It is really not well known even in California, being near no major freeway. When we take people up the winding road of Highway 32 (off Hwy 99 at Chico), you drive some 45 miles of scenic wilderness delight to left on Highway 36 (PS have a... More

I hiked Mt. Lassen in mid-October, just before the trail was closed for the winter and couldn't have picked a better time. At the southern end of the Cascade Range, the 10,457 ft peak was the last to erupt in California in May, 1915. It has unimpeded views to Mt. Shasta, 70+ miles NW and the Sierra Nevada, 125 miles...

We had a great day out at Lassen Volcanic National Park. It is a bit off the beaten track and we didn't find a cafe open in the park when we visited in october, so make sure you have food and drink with you. We did the car trail rather than the hiking trails and saw some lovely things, including... More

Hikes that the whole family can enjoy with beautiful views. Small piles of snow still were evident even in July near the top of the mountain trail.

You’ll find the miniature version in Lassen. Some mud holes, some peaks, some lakes. You won’t find an Old Faithfull, but the magnificent hiking trails are even more beautiful. A very nice, small park. Good for a day’s visit or even more if you like hiking.

My husband and I visited Lassen VNP this past May. We happened to be there the weekend of Memorial Day and because of lower snowfall amounts this past winter, they were able to open the park for weekend travelers. I have to admit I wasn't so sure that I wanted to take the time to make a stop since it... More

We were there for 4 days. There were so many hikes you can go on no matter what level of hiking you are at. I was surprised that there were mud pools and hot springs like what you seen at Yellowstone. When we were there the sky was so clear and you could see what seemed forever. The hike to... More
