Spent the day driving the 30-mile highway and stopping at all the overlooks, viewpoints, and pull-outs along the way. We entered through the NW entrance and made our first stop at Loomis Museum. We enjoyed all the historical information (movie, pictures, and displays) regarding the area. Park Rangers were there to answer questions and provided additional info. It was small,... More

We spent the day driving on the auto tour. It is a paved road, lots of stops for scenic views, and don't miss the video and museum at the visitor's center. There were a couple of the trails we were able to walk. As we had one handicapped person in our party, there wasn't a lot he could do as... More

The Lassen Peak Trail has recently been rebuilt and is in excellent condition. A climb from approx. 8,500ft elevation at the trailhead to Lassen Peak at 10.457 ft over a trail length of about 2.5 miles took me (62 yro mobile marginally fit male) about 2.5 hrs to summit, taking plenty of rest stops to acclimate to the thinning air....

While not the most spectacular peak in California, it is still quite impressive, especially given that it erupted and blew off the top one hundred years ago. Take the drive, take some photos, and marvel at nature.

Great national park, lots of interesting and informative posters and boards up. Fascinating area altogether, if a little terrifying on the roads up! Also got to look at the sun through a special telescope which the kids loved. As with all the national parks we visited, really well maintained and managed.

Have been waiting for my chance to go up there for years and years and finally made it! The view was great from the Lassen trail head and it got better from there! I am always amazed how it could be snow there when it is 85 degree out there :) The hike is a good exercise, especially due to... More

We had planned to visit and stay here on our trip and was disappointed only by the fact that we had not factored in a longer stay! Wow, what a place, total serenity, we just loved it, everything about it. We were travelling in an RV so stayed on the Visitor center car park which was fine, there are toilets... More

I visited this park with my family and we had a wonderful time. We started at the visitor center which offers a short film on the volcanic eruption and has some displays. We then drove through the park and stopped at all the marked areas. We were there in late July and unfortunately Bumpass Hell was still closed because of... More

We didn't have much time in the park, but visited because my wife and I wanted to show the kids another place we went when we were children. The terrain is beautiful and various stops along the way have good historical information about the last eruption (100 years ago) and about the pioneers in the area. One nifty thing that... More

YEs, hiking is awesome for those who favor it, but while driving through Lassen Volcanic National Park, I was on my way to Sulphur Works to see the steam coming out of the ground due to underground lava...cause come on, that's radical! I knew next to nothing about this park. During the drive my elevation was getting higher and higher... More
