Lassen Volcanic National Park will begin an eight-day helicopter operation to haul rock for the Reach the Peak Trail Rehabilitation Project. A Type I helicopter will be used to transport 2.4 million pounds of material staged in the Lassen Peak Parking Area to the Lassen Peak mountainside holding areas. The rock will be used to build steps and retaining walls. Park and California Conservation Corps trail crews have steadily worked selecting the rock from Hat Creek Quarry over the past month.
The Lassen Peak Parking Area and Trail is open to the summit on August 21 until 8 p.m. All vehicles must be moved from the Lassen Peak Parking Area at closure so equipment can be staged in preparation for flight operations. The Lassen Peak Trail and parking area will be closed from August 21 at 8 p.m. through August 31. During these helicopter operations there will be no stopping or parking along the 2.5 mile stretch of the main park road between Lake Helen Picnic Area and Terrace Lake Trailhead and the possibility of closure for short periods of time. The Lake Helen Picnic Area and Terrace Lake Trail will remain open for visitation.
Road restrictions will be removed September 1 to 2. The trail status will be updated and posted for September 3 through Labor Day following an assessment. Trail accessibility information can be found on the park website at http://www.nps.gov/lavo/parkmgmt/current-lassen-peak-trail-status.htm .
