One of peculiarities of Lassen volcanic is that there are quite a few areas not connected internally, you have to leave the park and re-enter using other entrance.
- I’ve spend two days exploring the central area with Lassen peak - this part gets most tourist traffic.
- There is Cinder Cone / Butte lake area. The trailhead accessible from north and is close to Old Station.
- There is Juniper lake area accessible from south and is close to Chester.
- And finally there is area near Drakesbad ranch accessible from south and is close to Chester.
