The Lassen Peak Region

Lassen Region Map The Mount Lassen Region is home to smoking fumaroles, meadows freckled with wildflowers, clear mountain lakes and a dormant volcano. Lassen Volcanic National Park, with a showcase of volcanic features, is an outdoor lover's delight. The park's fascinating features grew from a not-so-distant eruptive past - Lassen last blew its top in the early 1900s.
Visitors to the Park in the late spring and summer can travel by the main park road and a network of trails. Ambitious visitors can make the 2.5 mile hike that climbs 2,000 feet to enjoy the view from the summit of Mount Lassen. You can also seek out treasures tucked away in the park like Kings Creek Falls and Paradise Meadows, which sits in a glacier carved cirque at 7,100 feet elevation.
Visitors can find services outside the Park in Susanville and Chester or within the Park at the Manzanita Lake Campers Store. Several campgrounds and the Drakesbad Guest Ranch offer the only lodging within the Park.
