The significant other and I spent nearly 6 hours in the park on June 19th. The views are breath-taking. We took a couple of short hikes, 1.5 miles and 4 miles, and were rewarded with even more views. Lots of interpretive boards are provided. The...More

The drive through Lessen Volcanic National Park is beautiful and peaceful. Amazing views everywhere you look and places to stop so you can get an even better view. I was there in mid June and there was still enough snow to have a snowball fight...More

Snow capped in summer, this gives a great backdrop to the park and it's surrounds.... The visitors center provides a explanation of the history and what the volcano may have looked like.

Great visit to a great location. We only had a day trip. We were staying in Red Bluff so we drove about 50 minutes to see the park. First stop was at the Visitor Center. Very informative movie, gift shop, small cafe, and displays. Drove...More

I only spent 1 day at the park, but it was a wonderful drive with occasional stops for light trail hiking and photography. Everything from Mount Lassen herself to some Geothermal vents and some wildlife photograph of mountain lakes, scenic views.

Detoured off I5 to drive through the National Park. It was well worth it and would ask anyone with an afternoon to spare to do it as well. Started off at the North side overlooking the lake on a June day with temperatures around 90....More

We travelled to NoCal and one of the reasons was to see the LVNP. We were charged $25 (full price) and could only travel 10 miles inside the park from the NW side. The only thing you see in the the north end is "Hot"...More

You need to check the weather reports in the area and the National Park website - they keep up-to-date alerts on any road closures (or trail closures) due to weather or rehab. The weather is a little unpredictable there, so... More
