Runner Notes

Might be busy, more of a viewing trail than a place to run.

Description

Full of fumaroles, and mudpots, Devil's Kitchen is one of the best hydrothermal areas in the park! From the Warner Valley Trailhead, the first 0.6 mile passes through a meadow over small footbridges and boardwalks before reaching the intersection of Boiling Springs Lake Trail and Drake Lake Trail. Bear right at the intersection to continue to Drakesbad Meadow.

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.

Flora & Fauna

The trail to Devils Kitchen passes through two beautiful meadows before they're replaced by the hydrothermal area. This unique ecosystem prevents most plants and animals from thriving here.
