Year of Research

  • Discover the wonder and beauty of the one of a dramatic volcanic land from Oregon's Crater Lake National Park to California's Lassen Volcanic National Park.
  • Amid impressive scenery, you will enjoy charming towns, abundant wildlife, world-class birding, and extraordinary leisure, historical and cultural opportunities.
  • The southern end of the lane begins at California's Lake Almanor, just miles from the active geothermal features at Lassen Volcanic National Park.
  • The northern end of the byway is the capped by Crater Lake National Park in Oregon where mysteries of the earth's interior are deliberate.
  • Along the Byway you will see fantastic sites - the slopes of Mount Shasta jutting above the valley floor to the summit at 14,162 feet, curtains of water showering over basalt cliffs at McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park, and lands riddled with remains of subversive magma conduits at Lava Beds National Monuments.
