Not much to see if only going to this lake and out. Only couple bubbling spots. If you continue up the Bumpass Hell trail you we be in awe by all the beautiful scenery

Extremely beautiful and reflective! There wasn't much boiling going on except for one point at the edge of the lake, if you kept following the trail toward Crumbaugh. There were plenty of frogs jumping on and off the trail that were fun to catch and release. The grass was still green, and besides the temperatures it practically looked like spring.

With the drought as it is here in NorCal the lakes aren't at their best. Not much boiling going on and not much water. Pretty hike none the less. There are a lot of mosquitos however so bring spray.

Short easy trail. Promised bubbles were few and seldom. Mike
