The first 1.3 mile of the 2.5 mile Lassen Peak Trail in Lassen Volcanic National Park is to open for the public on Friday, August 14. The popular trail has been closed since an accident that occurred on the afternoon of July 29. "The first 1.3 mile of Lassen Peak Trail to reopen will provide opportunities for visitors to experience hiking on this large volcano and affords many views of the surrounding landscape," stated the Superintendent. "The remaining portion of the trail will remain closed this season, and work to reopen the trail to the summit will begin during the spring of 2010."
