Fodor's Expert Review Lassen Peak

Lassen Volcanic National Park Nature Sight 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. You can admire the peak from a number of points along the park road, and a fabulous panoramic view rewards those who make the strenuous 2½-mile hike to the 10,457-foot summit.
