Lassen Volcanic National Park was set aside because of its volcano, Lassen Peak, which erupted explosively in 1915. What is often lost sight of is that it is also a place of wonderful forests, lakes, meadows, and subalpine slopes, still relatively undiscovered by many. The high standard road through the park reaches its high point near Lake Helen, just below timberline. Specialty birds: Resident—Williamson’s Sapsucker; White-headed and Black-backed Woodpeckers; Clark’s Nutcracker. Summer—Red-breasted Sapsucker; Western Wood-Pewee; Hammond’s Flycatcher; Cassin’s Vireo; MacGillivray’s and Hermit Warblers; Western Tanager; Graycrowned Rosy-Finch; Cassin’s Finch. This eTrail provides detailed information on birding strategies for this specific location, the specialty birds and other key birds you might see, directions to each birding spot, a detailed map, and helpful general information.
