Celebrate National Winter Trails Day, Saturday, January 12, with a snowshoe adventure at Lassen Volcanic National Park. In addition to the regularly scheduled weekend ranger-led snowshoe walks from the Kohm-Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center, visitors may join a special Manzanita Lake snowshoe walk exploring Manzanita Lake area winter ecology. A bountiful December storm provided an excellent early season snowpack for winter recreation at both the south and north entrance of the park.

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.
