Lassen is a beautiful area up in Northern California! Plenty to do and lots of little hidden gems in this area. We did a backpacking trip here and was so well worth the 2 day hike from Butte lake to Snag. This is bear country so be carefully prepared to store your food and scented necessities. Either bring a bear canister or a bear proof bag. Also make sure you know how to hang the bags between trees. It took us a few hours to make sure ours was secure. That said, assure that you have atlas 100 ft. of paracord packed. While here, make sure to check our painted dunes and Cinder cone nearby.
