Boiling Springs Lake Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Similar to the trail to Bumpass Hell, this trip leads to one of the most active hydrothermal areas of the park, where heat and water meet below ground to emerge from the earth’s surface in a variety of interesting manifestations. Unlike Bumpass Hell, however, the trail to Boiling Springs Lake has one principal advantage— far fewer tourists, due to a location in a more remote part of Lassen Volcanic, accessed via a sometimes steep gravel road.

Despite its remote location, don’t expect to be totally alone, as vacationers from the Drakesbad Guest Ranch frequent the area’s trails. Another advantage of Boiling Springs Lake is its lower elevation, which results in warmer temperatures and a much earlier hiking season. Also, the meadows of Warner Valley are blessed with many more species of wildflowers."
