Information on:

Ahjumawi Lava Springs State Park

24898 Highway 89
530-335-2777

Ahjumawi is a place of exceptional, even primeval, beauty. Brilliant aqua bays and tree studded islets only a few yards long dot the shoreline of Ja-She Creek, Crystal Springs, and Horr Pond. Over two thirds of the area is covered by recent (three to five thousand years) lava flows including vast areas of jagged black basalt.

The park is a wilderness area and most of it is extremely rugged lava rock. Visitors should prepare adequately for their visit. While there are over twenty miles of park trails by which to explore this beautiful geographical wonder, please be advised that travel off the trails requires proper preparation and equipment. Be sure someone knows where you are going and when you expect to return.

Maybe a sustained-heat-induced algae bloom for our visit? Not nearly as sparkly clear waters (except at one or two SMALL springs) as I was led to believe by some pics. But being a little off the beaten path (and a weekday) meant the place was virtually empty - and VERY peaceful. You WANT to kayak here!
