Despite the neighboring fires all across California, the lassen park was refreshingly clear of smoke. I live that it is not nearly as crowded as Yosemite. The dark sky festival was amazing, a must see. Lassen park has some of the darkest sky in the...More

Honestly, I know Mount Lassen has a lot to offer. It is beautiful. I remember going as a teen and hiking the mountain, visiting the devastated area, etc. For some reason, though, on this trip it felt like we were only able to drive to...More

Out of the way but worth the trip. Magnificent vistas and beauty. Lots of very interesting geologic history and volcanic information.

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.

A great national park to visit! Not crowded! Each hike is a different experience from beautiful wild flower filled meadows (paradise meadows) to boiling lakes ( boiling lake trail), to steep and rocky jumbles ( chaos crags) to leisurely strolls (manzanita lake), to fumaroles and...More

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
