Lassen Volcanic National Park is developing a Wilderness and Backcountry Stewardship Plan. This plan will provide guidance on the management of wilderness and backcountry within Lassen Volcanic National Park, including but not limited to, cultural resources, research, and recreational opportunities such as trail use and development, camping, and stock use.

Planning Process
Lassen encourages the public to participate in two comment periods in the project planning process.

1. Internal Scoping
2. Public Scoping
3. Draft Environmental Assessment
4. Public Review
5. Final Environmental Assessment

Public Scoping
The park is currently in the initial stages of public scoping for the Wilderness and Backcountry Stewardship Plan. A brief newsletter is provided to give you information about the planning effort and invite you to participate in the planning process. During the public scoping period, the public is welcome to submit general comments, ideas, and opinions on wilderness and backcountry management at Lassen Volcanic National Park. In addition, the newsletter contains specific questions that the park would like your feedback one.

The 29 mile Main Park Road was constructed between 1925 and 1931, just 10 years after Lassen Peak erupted. Near Lassen Peak the road reaches 8512 feet, making it the highest road in the Cascade Mountains. It is not unusual for 40 feet of snow to accumulate on the road near Lake Helen.
