Get outdoors in Lassen Volcanic National Park, free entrance Saturday, June 9
“Outdoor physical activity is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle and national parks are great places to get out, experience nature and to get your heart pumping,” said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis.
National Get Outdoors Day is part of Great Outdoors Month, proclaimed by the president to encourage Americans, especially youth, to participate in outdoor activities and enjoy the beauty of our public lands.

“We hope you will come to Lassen Volcanic National Park and enjoy this wondrous park.There are a lot of hiking trails from easy to strenuous levels, still some snow to ski or play in, and lakes to take a walk around and enjoy viewing the wildlife,” stated Superintendent, Darlene M. Koontz.
Lassen will offer special ranger-led walks on Saturday in celebration of National Get Outdoors Day. Special programs include a one-hour Manzanita Lake nature walk at 10 a.m. leaving from the Loomis Museum and a ranger-led hike to Mill Creek Falls beginning at 2 p.m. leaving from the Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center.
Visitors are invited to get outdoors and explore Lassen this summer with the park's new Explore Safely program. Explore Safely helps visitors prepare for the challenges that come with recreating in Lassen's continually changing landscape, high elevation and dramatic seasons.
