Lassen Volcanic National Park: Explore A Land That Boils, Bubbles, and Steams

Discover the mysteries and magic of volcanoes in this steaming wilderness area. Bubbling mud pots, smoking steam vents, and four different types of volcanoes dot the geothermal wilderness of Lassen Volcanic National Park. This landscape was shaped by hot water and an eruptive past that is still evident amongst the rugged mountain peaks and sparkling lakes. With 150 miles of trails for hiking and snowshoeing, it’s a top destination for outdoor adventurers. Clear mountain lakes are ideal for kayaking, canoeing, boating, and fishing.

Situated east of Redding in Northern California, the park is dominated by Lassen Peak, the southernmost volcano in the Cascades range. It offers striking views from the summit and is surrounded by boiling hot springs, splattering mud pots, and steaming sulfur vents. The Devastated Area nearby is littered with lava rocks from the volcano’s last eruption in 1915. But most of the park is covered with lush forests, wildflower pastures, and peaceful trails.
