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.

Harder than easy, easier than moderate. A great introductory trail to get to know Lassen. Roof of California. Loved it.

great trail. pretty evenly divided with inclines and declines. Very beautiful and gets you away from the crowds. it's pretty shaded but exposed in some spots. the falls is gorgeous (see photos). you can continue on to connected trails if desired.

My friends and I loved this hike! We are all in relatively good shape and although it was only a 5 mile hike, it was still pretty challenging. Definitely well worth all the views though! There was still snow on lots of the peaks and great views of many lakes and peaks in the distance. Make sure to bring a jacket! We started the hike with clear blue skies and rain on the way down the peak.

This has been my favorite trail so far in Lassen! The hike was great from start to finish. It took about 3 hours 45 min with a 15 min break at the the top. Perfect view of Lassen Peak, and lots of good viewpoints along the trail. I highly recommend doing this trail when you visit the park, it was unforgettable.
