Cold Boiling Lake and Crumbaugh Lake Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This trip travels to two very different lakes. The first is the geologically interesting Cold Boiling Lake, where super-heated gases deep underground cool considerably on an upward journey before bubbling into the air at the shallow lake’s surface. The second stop, Crumbaugh Lake, reposes regally in a meadow-rimmed basin that puts on one of the park’s best midsummer wildflower displays.
While quite a few tourists find their way to Cold Boiling Lake, far fewer continue to Crumbaugh Lake, despite the relatively short distance. Therefore, visitors to Crumbaugh Lake can expect some solitude to enjoy the beautiful surroundings."
