This park is a gem. Not too crowded. Trails for every level of hiking. We hiked for two days and plan to return to do other hikes. The park has had 4 different types of volcanoes. Very educational. Visitor center is helpful too.

My favorite was Cinder Cone. Mount Lassen itself is not especially awesome-looking. It probably was before it blew up.

Snow capped in summer, this gives a great backdrop to the park and it's surrounds.... The visitors center provides a explanation of the history and what the volcano may have looked like.

You need to check the weather reports in the area and the National Park website - they keep up-to-date alerts on any road closures (or trail closures) due to weather or rehab. The weather is a little unpredictable there, so... More

Check their website for closures. If you go to their website, under "alerts" you can see their main road is closed. I'm assuming there will be too much snow in Jan.
