We will be traveling to Lassen Volcanic NP tomorrow from Weaverville CA on 299. We know nothing about the place so I think it is important that we go to the visitor’s center before beginning the day. Should we take 299 to 5 to 36 to enter to the south?
Is there anything I need to know about visiting there? I do know that Bumpass Hell Trail is closed for the season. We are an upper-60s couple in decent shape that look for easy to moderate hikes of 4 - 5 miles with no part of the trail forcing me within 2 feet of a sheer drop off without handrails.
