The stunning landscapes of Lassen Volcanic National Park beg the question: Why isn't this stunning pocket of wilderness besieged by the same crowds that flock to California's other national parks?
It's a question that can be pondered on the trails described in Hiking Lassen Volcanic National Park. Whether you are climbing to the airy summit of Lassen Peak, meandering along the boardwalks through Bumpass Hell, or skirting the Cinder Cone on a trail blazed by emigrants in the mid-1800s this guide will lead you into the mysterious and beautiful world of Cascadian volcanism.
The well-maintained web of trails that overlays the park is documented in this guide with first-hand, and elevation graphs. Author Tracy Salcedo-Chourré thoroughly documents 59 hikes, climbs, and backpacking routes; discusses the history and geology of the region; and provides information about the park itself.
So tuck Hiking Lassen Volcanic National Park into your backpack, ditch the crowds, and explore this rising star of America's national park system.
