Reach the Peak

Posted December 8, 2009

The Lassen Park Foundation is aiding Lassen Volcanic National Park in the rehabilitation of the Lassen Peak Trail. The trail allows visitors to hike 2.5 miles to the top of one of the largest plug dome volcanoes in the world, providing visitors with stunning views of surrounding areas, dacite rock formations, and an impressive overview of the Devastated Area. The trail rehabilitation project is partially funded by The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, fee monies set aside from park visitation, and contributions from the Lassen Park Foundation and the National Park Trust with the help of their supporters through donations and grants. The Park anticipates the Environmental Assessment (EA) to be released late this fall for public comment. Once the comment period is complete the EA will be finalized in consideration of comments and released as a final document after the new year. Work on the trail is to begin as soon as conditions allow the trail to be opened to the top. The project work identified in the EA will be completed over the next five years.
