Join a park ranger for a one and one-half to two-hour adventure exploring winter ecology and Lassen's geologic history in the Southwest area. Route and distance vary with the group and weather conditions. Participants must be at least eight years old and capable of moderate physical exercise. For safety reasons, infants and children in carriers are not allowed on the snowshoe walks. Wear boots, dress in warm layers, and bring a water bottle. The park provides snowshoes, with a suggested $1 donation to cover maintenance costs. Reservations are required for organized groups, but not for families or individuals. To schedule a group snowshoe walk, please call the park (530) 595-6132 or (530) 595-6133.
