Lassen park announces trail projects
Sunday, June 21, 2015 — As summer quickly approaches, Lassen Volcanic National Park is undertaking two major trails projects and wrapping up another. The Reach the Peak project is nearing an end with only small-scale projects left to finish this summer.
“Our trail crew, with assistance from the California Conservation Corps, worked diligently for five seasons on the rehabilitation of the Lassen Peak Trail and it is my pleasure to reopen the trail this summer for visitors to enjoy,” said Superintendent Steve Gibbons.
Starting Monday, June 8, the Kings Creek Falls overlook and immediately surrounding area closed to all visitors for the summer during construction of a new overlook. Trail crews will construct two elevated viewing platforms and a wooden guardrail at the overlook. The section of Kings Creek Falls trail that passes above the overlook will be closed to horses and stock animals to ensure the safety of the trail crew as they work below the trail.
