Park Superintendent Darlene M. Koontz announced today that the highway through the park will open for through traffic at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, June 1. "We are happy to have this major access to Lassen Volcanic National Park opened now that summer has arrived," stated Ms. Koontz. "This year's road opening operations progressed more quickly compared to last year's mid-July opening primarily because of the light snowfall this past winter." The roads to Butte Lake and Warner Valley are also open for the season.
