Lassen Volcanic National Park offers over 150 miles of hiking trails for visitors of levels of ability. Discover the devastation of Lassen Peak's last eruption on the accessible trail at the Devastated Area, explore Lassen's largest hydrothermal area on the Bumpass Hell trail, or spend the day climbing Brokeoff Mountain and enjoy its spectacular panoramic views. Please note that winter conditions often persist late into the summer months, and many trails are not snow free until June or July.

Bear Canisters Required for Backpackers
Overnight backcountry users must use a bear canister to store food and scented items. This regulation is in response to increased negative bear and human interactions in the park.
Hydrothermal Area Danger
For your safety, stay on established trails and boardwalks. Ground in hydrothermal areas can look solid but may actually be a thin crust hiding pools of acidic boiling water or mud. Traveling off-trail in these areas may result in severe injury. Read more about exploring the park hydrothermal areas.
