Ahjumawi Lava Springs State Park
Over two thirds of this park is covered by lava flows, including vast areas of jagged black basalt, mostly from Brushy Butte. Although young, the age of this basalt is unknown. In this place of remote and pristine beauty, you can catch sight of sparkling aqua bays, vistas of Lassen Peak and Mt. Shasta, as well as birds such as bald eagles, ospreys, and great blue heron. Herds of mule deer also forage through much of the park. “Ahjumawi” means "where the waters come together...." Big Lake, Tule River, Ja-She Creek, Lava Creek, and Fall River all unite here and form one of the largest systems of fresh water springs in the country. This Park is can only be accessed by boat.
