Lassen Volcanic National Park

Overview

Featuring rivers, lakes and waterfalls

Details

A deep winter snow-pack altered our 2019 visit to Lassen Volcanic National Park yet we still enjoyed the beauty of the mountains, the power of the waterfalls, and peacefulness of the lakes. We return this year, a month later in the hopes that the roads will be clear of snow.

Daily Itinerary

Day 1

During this brief three day vacation, travel to Redding by way of the old river road, Hwy. 99 through Chico, Tehama and Los Molinos. There is plenty of history to be found and we will stop along the way to explore. Arrive Redding, late afternoon in time to enjoy a walk along the river, or maybe just a cold beverage on the patio at the hotel. Sheraton Hotel at the Sundial Bridge – 2 nights (L)

Day 2

Travel east today into the Shasta Cascade Mountains. Your first stop is at Burney Falls, for a quick peek at the powerful force of water on the landscape. Continue east into Lassen Volcanic National Park, home to one of the mighty volcanoes along the Pacific Rim of Fire. Jagged peaks tell the story of its eruptive past while hot water continues to shape the land. From the bubbling mud pots to the pristine lakes and meadows; Lassen National Park is a hidden jewel of California. The 30-mile Lassen Volcanic National Highway meanders through the park connecting the Manzanita Lake region to the southwest entrance. Pass through dense forest, traverse a ridge with views spreading out far and wide, then descend through steep volcanic slopes with names like Chaos Jumbles (weather and road conditions permitting). This evening, enjoy a fine dinner while cruising across Lake Shasta on a catamaran. (L,D)

Day 3

This morning, meander through the foothills, re-entering the park from the south with a stop at the Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitors Center and the Sulphur Pots before returning to Sacramento in the late afternoon. (L)
