Things to Do in Lassen Volcanic National Park

Whether you visit in summer or winter, the national park offers plenty of fun activities to suit every type of adventurer.


Lassen Volcanic National Park contains over 150 miles of trails for hikers of all levels.

Some of the more popular hikes include visiting destinations such as the Devastated Area (showcasing the damage from Lassen Peak's last eruption), Bumpass Hell trail (to get amongst Lassen's largest hydrothermal area), and Brokeoff Mountain (for a more strenuous mountain climb offering spectacular panoramic views).

During the year, certain trails or hiking destinations may become closed to the public due to extreme weather conditions (like the heavy snow experienced in winter) or safety concerns. Updated trail conditions are available on the national park’s website.

Attend a Workshop

The national park also offers two fantastic workshops to guests who’d like to hone their creativity skills, including a two-day nature photography workshop and a two-hour course on watercolor painting.

Beginner artists and photographers are encouraged to join, as are more experienced creatives. Field seminar proceeds also directly benefit the park, plus you get to learn valuable new skills while surrounded by one of the most beautiful destinations in the world. What’s not to love?

Auto Touring

Thankfully, RVs are allowed into the park, and with the area’s 30-mile Lassen Volcanic National Park Highway, this provides a fun, comfortable, and scenic way to witness its breath-taking beauty.

For those wanting to play an audio tour as they cruise through, one can be picked up from the Loomis Museum or Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center, making it an educational experience too.

One of the most popular destinations to drive to in the national park is the Sulphur Works. Guests can enjoy a safe hydrothermal experience at a roadside fumarole (steam vent) and witness the loud boiling mudpots for themselves.

Travelers also enjoy driving to Lassen Peak Parking Area and Viewpoint. With an elevation of 8,512 feet, it’s the highest (and therefore most scenic) point on the park road.
