I often make a one-day drive through LVNP and here is my itinerary. I usually start from the north entrance (explained below) and stop at the Devastated Area just to sit and gasp in awe for awhile. I either eat lunch there (which I have brought with me) or at King's meadow. I often stop for a hike to King's Creek Falls (about a mile each way) or Bumpass Hell (1.8 miles each way) then stop at the south-end Visitor's Center for a soft-serve ice cream cone before heading back down to the valley.

There are several places along the route with scary roadways along the edge of the cliff which I find very unpleasant to drive. Starting from the north end minimizes those spots because I am driving on the cliff side rather than on the edge side.

I second Bumpass Hell. On our trip last fall that was one of our favorite trails.

One of the main points to visit Lassen is to see sulfur works and the volcanic formations. I highly suggest that you visit Bumpass Hell. The hike should take you no more than 2 hours even if you go really slow. It is truly amazing. Without doing the more difficult trails, you'll be missing out on many amazing things like brokeoff mountain. I'd stop at Manzanita lake and look around. Driving through the park by itself is an amazing experience.
