Lassen Park Road Opens Thursday, Breaking Record

Huge winter snows led to the latest opening ever for the national park's main road.

Lassen Volcanic National Park visitors can finally cruise the main park highway as of July 27, after crews worked for months to clear last winter’s abundant snows from the pavement. This is the latest-ever opening for the road, beating the previous record of July 21, set in 1995.
