Travel | Lassen National Park

Travel | Lassen National Park

Lassen Volcanic National Park is in northern California and is a miniature Yellowstone, complete with fumaroles and mud pots, as well as a new LEED-certified visitors’ center. It's rich in hydrothermal sites like Bumpass Hell and the summit of Lassen Peak Volcano offers views over the surrounding wilderness. Nearby, the Devastated Area is littered with lava rocks from its last eruption. A network of trails through forest and around several lakes connects with the Pacific Crest Trail in the north.

When to Go
The volcanic areas are best visited in summer and early fall. Heavy snows close most of the main roads in winter.
