Top Reasons to Go to Lassen Volcanic National Park
Hike a volcano: The 2½-mile trek up Lassen Peak rewards you with a spectacular view of far northern California.
Spot a rare bloom: The Lassen Smelowskia, a small white-to-pinkish flower, grows only in Lassen Volcanic National Park, mainly on Lassen Peak.
View volcano varieties: All four types of volcanoes found in the world—shield, plug dome, cinder cone, and composite—are represented in Lassen Volcanic National Park.
Listen to the earth: The park's thumping mud pots and venting fumaroles roil, gurgle, and belch a raucous symphony from beneath the earth's crust.
Escape the crowds: Lassen, in sparsely populated far northern California, is one of the least-visited national parks.
