All Events & Activities
Description:

Ranger-led snowshoe walks are an excellent way to learn or practice snowshoeing techniques and explore Lassen in its winter form. The walks cover one to two miles of moderately strenuous terrain. They don’t follow a trail—the hike is an off-trail exploration through the forests near the Visitor Center. At the beginning of each snowshoe walk, a ranger will demonstrate how to put on snowshoes and how to move around. Once the basic techniques are covered, the group heads out into the snow and the adventure begins!

Please Note: Walks may be canceled at the last minute due to extreme weather conditions. Please feel free to call (530) 595-4480 ahead to check on conditions.
