The reason to haul yourself and your family and your friends and your gear all the way out to Mount Lassen is to get out and experience this amazing scenic wilderness.
Do be aware that the “lower” elevations of Mount Lassen trails sit more than 7,000 feet above sea level. If you’re planning serious hiking, come up a day early and camp on the mountain to acclimate to the elevation. The next day you’ll be better able to take the longer and higher trails without succumbing to altitude sickness.
