About Lassen National Park

Lassen National Park is located in the Cascade Range in the northern edge of California and intersects with the Sierra Nevadas and the Great Basin Desert. Lassen Peak last erupted in 1914. It is filled with hydrothermal activity, which includes bubbling mudpots and hot springs.

Lassen Peak is considered a living example of the future of Mt. St. Helens where one can see meadows, forests, lakes, and wildlife returning to the site of a volcanic eruption.

The park is among the oldest parks established under the National Park System and because of the remote location, a mere 400,000 people visit Lassen each year.

Lassen Peak was named after Peter Lassen. Lassen, along with fellow explorer, William Nobles, were developing pioneer trails to open another route to California in the mid-1800s. Lassen wished to create a town at the base of the peak, but it never materialized. Instead, this area remained a passing through point. The extreme elevation and unpredictable weather kept it from becoming a civilized area.

The park is a perfect place for stargazing since it is one of the last places with an abundance of natural darkness. Park Rangers host starry night programs during the summer months in nature's observatory. This natural planetarium is perfect for both amateur and professional sky watchers.

The hiking trails take you along the devastated area of the last eruption, the hydrothermal areas, along mountain lakes of the deepest blues and go over peaks that test the climbing ability of the hiker. These trails spread out over 150 miles and range from easy to extreme, so hikers should know their limitations.

In addition, there are several camping areas and the park hosts festivals and events for the public.

Lassen National Park can also be experienced by car on the 30-mile paved road that winds through the park past all major viewing points.

Lassen is open year-round, but weather closes most of the roads during the winter.
