Hiking Boiling Springs Lake Trail
Start: parking area west of Warner Valley Campground
A number of steam vents are located under Boiling Springs Lake, keeping the temperature of the lake around 125 degrees. The mud pots on the southeast shore are among the best in the park.
The trail crosses a meadow and then goes through forest to the lake and around it. Trees include incense-cedar, ponderosa pine, Douglas-fir, white fir, sugar pine, and others. A variety of wildflowers are found and it is a good area to observe birds.

Brokeoff Mountain, seen here in Lassen Volcanic National Park, was once part of a much larger composite volcano, called Brokeoff Volcano, that towered 1000 feet above Lassen Peak and looked similar to Mount Shasta.
