A hike that visits some of the most scenic country in the Park, but is nonetheless mostly downhill.  It requires a shuttle (provide your own) on the Main Park Road. 

You visit the sulphurous Bumpass Hell, the North Fork Feather River headwaters freshlet, pretty Cold Boiling Lake, beautiful Crumbaugh Lake, expansive Conard Meadows, and oddly dramatic Mill Creek Falls.

The shuttle can be done with a bicycle, which is an excellent ride, but adds greatly to the challenge.  Recommend to ride down the road, and hike up the trail (so fewer cars will be passing you on the narrow roadway)
