Significance: The Lassen Park Road--a thirty mile stretch of scenic mountain road through Lassen Volcanic National Park--is a classic example of early twentieth century park road design. The road, which is the sole means of automobile access to the greater part of Lassen Volcanic National Park, was carefully designed and located to maximize scenic opportunities for automobile tourists while preserving the majority of the park as wilderness. Built between 1925 and 1934, the Lassen Park Road is an example of an early collaboration between the National Park Service and Bureau of Public Roads in the design and construction of national park roads. It represents an important example of national park planning, development, and scenic road design in the early decades of the twentieth century.
