  • A can’t-miss stop in Lassen Volcanic. The hike to the thermal area was moderately strenuous and well worth it. The well-designed boardwalk system offers a nice flow and great vantage points for all...

Little Yellowstone of California..!! Please park only in the parking lot..!! Don't miss the Artist Palate..!! Overview from top is great as well.. Colorful & great for photography.. Parking has restroom as well..!!
  • The Bumpass Hell Trail is the most themo intensive trail on the western side of the park. It took about 2 hours for a non stop round trip hike for about 4 miles. I did it in almost 3-3.5 hours as I went all the way to the trail summit, where you had a 360-degree view of park. I stayed for almost 20 minutes without another soul. It wa see ally refreshing and serene that you have all that space and time by yourself!!! Amazing feeling! I recommend anyone to spend 30-60 minutes when you reach the summit and soak with the feeling of satisfaction. Cheers!
