Spot Comments:


  • This was my favorite hike in Lassen. The hike up the cinder cone is extremely steep and difficult but the views from the top make the effort well worth it.

    Check out the Cinder Cone, Fantastic Lava Beds, Painted Dunes spot page for more photos and info.

  • I too enjoyed the park. Climbing on cinders is exhausting. Take your time. I did not make it up Mt. Lassen however. Ran out of air.
