Featured: Lassen Volcanic National Park
Lassen Volcanic National Park is a crowning jewel in Northern California’s crown yet for many it lays undiscovered.
The park is worthy of a multi-day visit, which easily justifies the three-and-a-half hours journey from San Francisco. Compared with an equally distant Lake Tahoe, you’d find Lassen Volcanic National Park a remarkably quiet landscape.
Bear in mind that at these elevations winter makes the single through-road impassible between November and May depending on conditions. So if you want to see everything in the park plan accordingly. However, the Southwest area of the park is open year-round for winter and spring activities.
