"Driving From Reno" Lassen Volcanic National Park Transportation Tip by mcpangie

  Lassen Peak
by mcpangie

Lassen Volcanic National Park is less than 150 miles from Reno, Nevada. From Reno, take 395 north to Susanville, then head west on highway 44.

Here's the view from a look out near the end of highway 44 coming out of Susanville, California, closing in on Old Station (which does have an advertised 24-hour gas station. The road you can see is actually highway 89, which hooks up to I-5 just south of Weed and Yreka, about 40 miles from the Oregon border.

Lassen Peak is peak with higher elevation, and next to that on viewing right is Chaos Crags.
