I have been going to Mt. Lassen for the past ten years for camping, fishing, swimming and hiking. We normally camp at 6000 feet and fish for rainbow and brown trout in the Feather River and numerous streams that run down the mountain. Lake Almanor and the town of Chester are at the foot of Mount Lassen which is covered with different kinds of pine trees, the most beautiful being the Ponderosa Pine. Lots of deer, owl, coyote, fox, bald eagle, hawks, rabbit and once in awhile a black bear,bobcat or mountain lion. Driving to the top takes about 1 1/2 hours and includes beautiful views as you gain altitude. The top has boiling mud, small crystal clear lakes and spectacular views. As you drive around the volcano there are other larger lakes, hot springs and a few hotels and resorts.
