Boiling Springs Lake Professional Review and Guide
"The milky green waters of Boiling Springs Lake are a relatively gentle example of the volcanic forces at work in Lassen Volcanic National Park. Set in a deep bowl, surrounded by steep cliffs topped by evergreens, the lake simmers peacefully, seeming to belie the warning signs that surround it. The trail to the lake used to be interpretive, with signposts that corresponded to information provided in a small pamphlet describing both geothermal activity and the area’s ecosystems. Since the area was deemed part of the designated wilderness that comprises much of the park’s backcountry, signposts and interpretive materials have been removed. Highlights: A short hike through dense forest to a geothermal lake."
