Hike Past Steaming Mudpots And A 125-Degree Lake On The Boiling Springs Lake Trail In Northern California

If there’s one thing Lassen Volcanic National Park in Northern California is known for, it’s otherworldly scenery. Home to an abundance of hydrothermal features, volcanic peaks, alpine lakes, and wide-open meadows, it’s the type of park you could spend forever exploring…and still not see it all. However, if you can only explore one section of this fantastic destination, we definitely recommend the Boiling Springs Lake Trail. The trail is fairly easy, but you’ll be treated to seriously unique views that include steaming mudpots and, of course, Boiling Springs Lake.
