Wanted: Expert on Lassen Volcanic National Park
Wanted: Expert on Lassen Volcanic National Park. Topic: Snowshoeing.
Hey fellow Travelers, we've received a question from a reader regarding snowshoeing possibilities at Lassen. And, having not personally visited the park, we're hoping someone can offer some insights.
Specifically, what trail or trails on the park would be good for a group new, or relatively new, to snowshoeing?
Now, we understand ranger-led hikes are held Saturdays and Sundays from January 3rd through April 5th. Those interested in these should meet the ranger at 1:30 p.m. outside the Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center in the southwest area. The walks are 1.5 to 2 hours in length. The route and type of walk is determined by snow conditions. Participants must be at least eight years old and be able to do moderate physical exercise. Participation is first-come, first-served.
$1.00 donation for use of snowshoes.

Beyond those opportunities, does anyone have any suggested trails that might work well for this group?
