Lassen Volcanic National Park began as two separate monuments set aside by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1907; they were combined and elevated to National Park status on August 9, 1916. Lassen Peak, the southern-most volcano in the Cascade Range, is the largest plug dome volcano in the world. Its latest activity, between 1914 and 1921, devastated the area, raining lava, rock and ash in over 150 incidents.  Mud pots, fumaroles and hot springs are abundant throughout the park’s 106,372 acres, one of the few areas in the world that demonstrates all four volcanic features: plug dome, cinder cone, shield and composite. Due to the intermittent activity of the Cascades Range throughout the past century, the United States Geological Survey keeps a close eye on the movements of this seemingly dormant yet perilous mountain range.
