Lassen Peak, the largest plug dome volcano in the world, is joined by all three other types of volcanoes in this park: shield, cinder dome, and composite. Other than the volcano, which last erupted in 1915, the park has hydrothermal areas, including fumaroles, boiling pools, and steaming ground, heated by molten rock under the peak.

this is my favorite trail in the park...an important note though - dogs are NOT ALLOWED ON THIS TRAIL. There are zero dog friendly trails in the national park and you can be fined for it.

Enjoyable hike / walk with minor elevation changes and an amazing view of the valley. Highly recommended for families and hikes of all ages.

Consistent incline all the way up with views of Lake Helen. Recommend for the average hiker with breaks along the way!

Difficult at times but the views are more than worth it! Lassen peak and the surrounding area are gorgeous. If you’ve done the peak you can easily do this trail. Definitely recommend a lot of water and a fully charged camera! Also, the peak is windy so pack accordingly.

A great trail for any age! The altitude makes it tougher than I expected, but I saw kids and Middle Aged adults on the trail. The top has beautiful views and fun rock formations to boulder around. You can also get to the crater and walk inside, it was so neat! I highly recommend this trail!
