Terminal Geyser Trail

California | Lassen Volcanic by v8.6m

Activities & Features


Terminal Geyser Trail is a moderate kid friendly hike in Lassen Volcanic National Park that leads to some of the park's spectacular thermal features. The park says this trail "continues from Boiling Springs then follows the Pacific Crest Trail. Drops steeply to a clearing at the base of the geyser. Not an actual geyser, but a fumarole with a stream running over it." The trailhead is located north of the Warner Valley Campground on the Warner Valley Road. There is camping available in Lassen Volcanic National Park.
