We didn't climb all the way as we were a little rushed because snow was coming and the roads were going to be shut at 3:00pm. That's OK. It was COLD! Mid October, but it was great, because we pretty much had the place to...More

This hike was great! It's strenuous and you may have to take your time if you aren't use to incline (I live on the east coast where it's completely flat). Bring wind protection. How many chances do you have to hike up a volcano? Awesome...More

Lassen Volcanic National Park really opened my eyes to how beautiful this part of Northeastern California really is. Having 4 types of volcanoes makes this park unique. As you drive through the park, you'll find where the lava flowed and what it created.

This mountain dominates the landscape in Lassen Volcanic National Park. It is stunning to view & there are hikes of varying lengths you can do on it.

Had a fab hike up to the summit of Lassen on a hot day in early September with snow around from the last season! Great views and actually quite a simple hike, but takes around 3-4 hours in total.

Lassen is a national treasure, to be sure. It's the jewel of Northern California, affording expansive meadows, pristine lakes and stream and fabulous hiking trails. We stayed at the legendary Draksbad Guest Ranch and loved every minute! We hiked, road horseback, explored the Visitor's Center...More

I can't believe I haven't heard about this beautiful park until recently. Such a beautiful park and not as crowded as Yosemite or Sequoia Park. We've been visiting the park for two days while staying at Airbnb in Redding for a night. Luckily, we checked...More

Visited Lassen in early October and the weather was perfect. Hiked Lassen Peak and took about 2 to 3 hours to ascend and about half that to descend. The trail is well maintained. Not too rocky. We used hiking poles as it was recommended but...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.
