Bumpass Hell

Bumpass Hell

Bumpass Hell

Third time lucky - Bumpass Hell was open for my third trip to Lassen Volcanic National Park. It's a three mile out and back with great views and of course a whole bunch of geothermal features at the end. The trail winds gently up to Bumpass Hell where there is a steep and surprisingly slippery descent (and an alternate route back up for a very small loop at the end of the trail). Very glad to have finally hiked it.
