Lassen Volcanic National Park in northern California is home to numerous volcanoes, clear mountain lakes, meadows of wildflowers, and steaming fumaroles. Jagged peaks tell the story of its eruptive past while hot water continues to shape the land. It’s rich in hydrothermal sites like Bumpass Hell, with its acres of bubbling mud pots. The summit of Lassen Peak Volcano offers views over the surrounding wilderness. Nearby, the Devastated Area is littered with lava rocks from its last eruption. A network of trails through the forest and around several lakes connects with the Pacific Crest Trail in the north.
