This diverse park boasts 4 volcano types, hydrothermal areas, and 150-miles of hiking trails.

Lassen Volcanic National Park is located in northern California. It is rich in hydrothermal sites like Bumpass Hell, with acres of bubbling mud pots, fumaroles, boiling pools, and steaming ground heated by molten rock. 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 in 1915.

A network of trails through forests and several lakes meets up with the Pacific Crest Trail in the north. Lassen Peak, the largest plug dome volcano in the world, is joined by all three other types of volcanoes in this park: shield, cinder dome, and composite. In the spring and summer, the meadows within the park are blooming with wildflowers. Any hiking trail you choose will offer scenic and serene beauty, but it is best to plan ahead or get a trail guide from the visitor center since cell service is quite limited within the park.

The park is open 24/7, but the road access may be limited from November to May due to excessive snow. Average temperatures during the peak of summer range from about 50 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit. A vehicle pass fee applies to all visitors throughout the year, and backcountry camping permits can be purchased online for avid campers seeking an adventure. Enjoy your stay at this amazing national park with your friends and family.
