We did this trail opposite - starting at cold boiling lake because bumpass hell trail is currently closed. Amazing hike, but NOT easy done this way. Steep all the way to bumpass, but so worth it. Beautiful wildflowers all along the trail, mostly shaded, and we were one of the only ones at the end. Fun to enjoy bumpass without the crowd.

With the Bumpass hell basin area being closed for renovations until 2018 end, took this trail from cold boiling lake to Bumpass hell. Easy hike with amazing views of Crumbaugh Lake along the hike and Bumpass Hell. Cold Boiling lake was disappointing though.

Kinda disappointed in this one. Don't go expecting a boiling lake, most like a few burping air bubbles. The hike itself is nice and has some great views though.

This trail is marked at 1.8 miles each way on the trail sign from Bumpass Hell. The 5.4 miles per this site seems a lot more accurate. We hiked on a warm August day and got a little dehydrated. I would recommend it but bring lots of water. The views along the way of wildflowers, springs and Crumbaugh Lake and Cold Boiling Lake were absolutely spectacular. Cold Boiling Lake itself as a destination was kind of underwhelming.

Быстрый спуск, перевал и обратно. На тропинку в нескольких местах на склонах выходит вода из горы. Не обойти, обычные кроссовки в болотце утонут, лучше трейловые либо показывать акробатические скилы.
