Brief DescriptionNational Park
CategoryNational Park
DescriptionCome witness a brief moment in the ancient battle between the earth shaping forces of creation and destruction. Nestled within Lassen's peaceful mountain forests you will find that hissing fumaroles and boiling mudpots still shape and change the land. Lassen Volcanic National Park's consists of 106,372 acres of outdoor recreational activities and opportunities that can vary depending on the season. The park contains over 150 miles of hiking trails, incredible views of the various points of interest, surrounding areas, mountain ranges and some of the beautiful mountain lakes. There are also eight campgrounds to choose from that are located throughout the park and a large part of Lassen's wilderness is available for wilderness camping with a free permit. A few miles past the park, visitors can take a self-guided tour through the Subway Caves, naturally formed caves that were formed less than 20,000 years ago as a result of the Hat Creek flow that was discharged from a series of north-south fissures (or cracks in the earth). Nearby is Hat Creek, one of Northern California's most scenic and best fish habitat streams in Northern California. A number of springs just north of Lassen Volcanic National Park provide good clear water to this prolific trout stream. Numerous scenic views await the naturalist in many of the recreational sites along Hat Creek.
Lassen Volcanic National park celebrates it's 100th anniversary in 2016 with special events throughout the year. Check for more.
