Bumping Lake Trail 971 Professional Review and Guide

"Hike along the shore of Bumping Lake, watching for elk and possibly stopping to fish as you go. The trail first descends a short distance, then turns right to head southwest along the lakeshore. The forest along the lake consists of mixed-age conifers, and much of the ground is covered with vanilla leaf. Vanilla leaf blooms in June here.

Scattered around between the trees and above the vanilla leaf are a few shrubby Rocky Mountain maples and mountain ash bushes. After a short distance along the lake, the shoreline steepens, forming talus slopes, which in places reach nearly to the water’s edge. Penstemon sprouts from between the rocks, blooming by mid-June, and Oregon grape and hazel brush dot the slopes."
