HIKING DEVASTATED AREA TRAIL Lassen Volcanic National Park, California

Hiking Team: Dave Miller, Rosie Miller

Date: July 11, 2022

This 1-mile hike was a combination of the Hat Creek Trail area and the Devastated Area Trail. Damage in this area was from the 1915 volcano eruption and from the 2021 Dixie Forest Fire. Burned trees plus rocks thrown from the volcanic blast covered the area. Several kiosks told the story of the devastation and recovery efforts. The good news, many trees from the fire were already showing signs of re-growth. Wildlife have returned to the fire area as we saw several eagles fly overhead.
