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.
