Notes from Lassen Park:

  • If you want to make copies of it to put on the dashes of the other cars that is fine too.
  • If you have a run in with a bear the park would like to know about it so that we can haze the bears to get them afraid of humans again. Shoot us an email if you have another run in this year.
  • [If entering via Warner Valley] there is trailhead parking just on the other side of the road from the Warner Valley Campground. Please park there and not at Drakesbad Ranch.
