Bumpass Hell Trail and Boardwalk Rehabilitation
Lassen Volcanic National Park wants your input on managing the Bumpass Hell Trail and boardwalk. Established trails and boardwalks provide a safe, up-close experience in this high-visitation area. The purpose for the project is to ease maintenance for the Bumpass Hell Trail and boardwalk, while preserving natural and historic resources, improving interpretive opportunities, and accommodating high visitor use to and within the Bumpass Hell Basin.
Bumpass Hell Trail
The hottest and most vigorous hydrothermal features in Lassen Volcanic National Park are at Bumpass Hell. A three mile round-trip trail―one of the most popular in the park―provides access to the Bumpass Hell basin. Within the basin, a boardwalk traverses a portion of the hydrothermal area and additional trails offer access to the southern portion of the basin and connect to additional area trails. While Bumpass Hell is a popular destination for park visitors, it is also a dynamic geologic area in which the only predictable element is change.
