Lassen Volcanic National Park Looking for Input on Bumpass Hell Trails
Because of the high visitation to Bumpass Hell basin and the desire to provide an up-close experience near the hydrothermal features and the danger associated with off-trail travel in this hydrothermal area, trails and some boardwalks are a necessity to provide safe visitor access while also protecting the hydrothermal features themselves.
The park is in the initial planning stages to develop a new trail concept for the Bumpass Hell basin. Under consideration are several options to provide and improve the unique experience of visiting this area and the park would appreciate input from the public.
