Lassen Volcanic National Park is a spectacular example of wilderness at its best; rugged landscapes, volcanic activity, abundant wildlife and water in every form.
Almost four-fifths of the park is designated Wilderness, a land of gorgeous lakes teeming with fish, thick forests of pine and fir, many splendid creeks, and a fascinating hodgepodge of extinct and inactive volcanoes. Best of all, this mountainous country remains relatively uncrowded by California standards.
Before the arrival of the white man, the Lassen area was frequented by people from 4 Indian tribes - the Maidu, Atsugewi,the Yana and the Yahi. However, the discovery of gold in California drew many white adventurers to the area and exerted a great deal of pressure on native inhabitants. Fur trappers carried malaria to the peoples of the area. The Yani and Yahi largely disappeared.
The Sulfur Works in Lassen Volcanic National Park is where there is still heat. Geologically this is a young volcano so the heat is subsurface - either hot rock or magma. Water seeps down and gets heated and the fluids and vapors come up here.
