Mount-Lassen rises approximately 10,500 feet above sea level and towers above the region's seven national forests. Situated on the southern tip of the Cascade Mountains, Mount Lassen is an active, although "sleeping" volcano that last erupted in 1915. Mount Lassen is less visited than other popular California attractions and travel is restricted in wintertime, due to heavy snowfalls. But, Mount Lassen is one of the most unusual and fascinating places in the state. This impressive mountainous region has mud pools, gas vents, and hot springs, together with beautiful lakes, clear mountain streams, meadows, cliffs and waterfalls. Some of the most impressive things to see in the area include Manzinita Lake, the Lava Beds National Monument, Mill Creek Falls, and Lake Helen, located at the foot of Lassen Peak. Bumpass Hell is the largest area of geothermal features in Lassen National Park and is definitely a highlight of the park. A 1.5 mile trail from the parking lot opposite Lake Helen takes you to Bumpass Hell, where you can view sulfur pits, steaming mud pits, hot springs and noisy steam vents. Lassen State Park has lots of winter ski activities, and also has a lodge and camping available in the park. The nearby towns of Mt. Shasta, Dunsmuir, Burney, and McCloud offer more lodging and dining choices.
