Bumpas Hell to Cold Boiling Lake Reviews

I started at the Bumpass Hell parking area near Lake Helen and hiked through Bumpass and continued on to Cold Boiling Lake. The trail was easy to follow, there's a bit of a climb out of Bumpass and then it's mostly side-hill until you descend to Cold Boiling Lake. The morning I was there it was perfectly calm and nobody else was around, very serene. I ended up hiking out to the Kings Creek picnic area and walking back along the road until two Franks in a pickup truck gave me a ride back to my van (thanks again guys!!). Although it worked out for me that day, it probably makes more sense to do the hikes separately unless you can arrange transportation between the trailheads.
