Fodor's Expert Review Lassen Peak

Lassen Volcanic National Park Geological Site Fodor's Choice

When this plug dome volcano erupted in 1915, it spewed a huge mushroom cloud of debris almost 6 miles into the air. A fabulous panoramic view makes the strenuous 2½-mile hike to the 10,457-foot summit worth the effort.
