Had a fab hike up to the summit of Lassen on a hot day in early September with snow around from the last season! Great views and actually quite a simple hike, but takes around 3-4 hours in total.

Lassen is a national treasure, to be sure. It's the jewel of Northern California, affording expansive meadows, pristine lakes and stream and fabulous hiking trails. We stayed at the legendary Draksbad Guest Ranch and loved every minute! We hiked, road horseback, explored the Visitor's Center...More

In late march Lassen was up to your waistline in snow! Still, it was worth the effort to drive up to the visitors center. Lots of neat things to see, including a mountain of sand in a box that changed colors as you would wave...More

Many facilities are closed by then. The visitor center at the south entrance might be open. Rangers offer guided snowshoe hikes in the winter. The road through the park will close when the snow starts piling and very few... More

According to the National Park Service website for Lassen, the "Highway is open to Devastated Area from NW entrance (10 miles) and Bumpass Hell parking area (7 miles) from SW entrance." I suggest that you check the nps.gov... More
