Lassen Volcanic National Park was recently recognized as one of the Best “unknown” National Parks in the United States. Fortunately for most of us in the Sierra region, it just means more space and time for us to explore without the crowds. It also means at times it seams like Lassen Staff latches onto new ideas and events for the public pretty quick so that they can draw a crowd to the park. The Lassen Volcanic Staff already leads weekend tours int he park all winter long for guests. Now they are adding anew Spanish feature for the spanish speaking crowd.

New! Spanish Snowshoe Programs
Saturday, February 7, February 21, March 7, and March 21, 2015
Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center | 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

This winter Lassen will offer ranger-led snowshoe programs in Spanish and English. These walks will most likely follow the snow-covered park highway from the Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center to the Sulphur Works hydrothermal area. The route is about two miles round-trip and is appropriate for first-time snowshoers. Please read more information about ranger-led programs in general here.
