Lassen Peak, a plug dome, is the main focus of this 165-square-mile tract of dense forests and alpine meadows. Its most spectacular outburst was in 1915, when it blew a cloud of ash almost 6 miles high. The resulting mudflow destroyed vegetation for miles and the evidence is still visible today. The volcano finally came to rest in 1921 but is not yet considered dormant.
