Location: Lassen Volcanic National Park, Mineral, CA US 96063 Directions
Type: Other
Event: Reach the Peak Adult
Hiker start times: 8am - 11am
Event activities @ trail head: 8am - 3pm

The Lassen Peak trail offers hikers the opportunity to climb to the top of one
of the largest plug dome volcanoes in the world. Beginning at the Lassen Peak
parking area, the trail climbs through twisted mountain hemlock and whitebark
pine trees on sand-like cinders. As the trees begin to thin and vistas of the park
come into view, the trail steepens into series of switchbacks along a rocky ridge
to the summit. The maintained trail ends at the first summit where exhibits invite
hikers to rest and explore the panoramic view. Hikers may then continue to the
second summit or the peak crater where a lingering rotten-egg smell of hydrogen
sulfide reminds visitors that Lassen is ever-active.
Start Time: 8:00am PDT
End Time: 3:00pm PDT
Registration: Online Registration is Closed
