“Lassen's second largest hydrothermal area, most of the trail is dirt but there is also a boardwalk.”— Alden james
Family Friendly The main part of the trail is a wooden boardwalk, and the geologic features along the way will capture the imagination.
The trail continues alongside Drakesbad Meadow before crossing the upper meadow over a series of boardwalks. At the edge of the meadow, the trail climbs gradually into forest and continues through a series of rises and dips 0.9 mile before crossing Hot Springs Creek. After the creek crossing, the trail climbs to a short loop through the Devil's Kitchen hydrothermal area.
