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.

We stayed at the legendary Draksbad Guest Ranch and loved every minute! We hiked, road horseback, explored the Visitor's Center...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

Out in the boonies, but really worth the effort to get there. We had researched the Park before coming. But we were surprised and impressed at the thermal features and the importance of the area volcanically (is that a word?). They have a nice Visitor...More

We had been to Reno many times and often combine it with a drive around Lake Tahoe. This time, for something different, we went to Lassen Volcanic National Park, about three hours away. The drive is beautiful and the park is spectacular, with boiling mudpots,...More
