If you can go up there it's a great place,from the lot a 2.5 mile trail takes you to Lassen Peak at 10,457 feet. Read all trail safety info if you go.The trail to the peak is not open yet due to snow and ice.
It is a 45 minute drive to the south entrance from my house and we are supposed to hit 108 today.
