In Lassen Volcanic National Park's peaceful forests and gem-like lakes lies evidence of a turbulent and fiery history. When in centuries past continental plates collided, the explosive volcanic activity that ensued laid down good bones for a landscape now given over more to snow-flocked trees, wildlife and lucid ponds rather than lava flow and ash clouds. Last active in the early 20th century, Lassen Peak is the park's centerpiece, towering over the surrounding dormant volcanoes set between the Cascade and Sierra Nevada ranges.
All four types of volcanoes in the world are found within Lassen Volcanic National Park. Over 150 miles of trails and a scenic highway provide access to associated sights including steam vents, mudpots, boiling pools, volcanic peaks, and painted dunes. While hikers and bikers frequent the park in summer months, the winter sees a steady stream of cross country skiers come to explore miles of fresh powder.
Lassen Volcanic National Park is located in northeast California, about 50 miles east of Redding.
