Tolsona Mud Volcanoes Trail

Difficulty

Easy

This is a privately maintained trail. It is located 14 miles west of Glennallen at the Tolsona Wilderness Campground, at mile 173 on the Glenn Highway. Hikers who are not registered campers are asked to pay a fee of $5 per vehicle. The trail is rated easy – moderate, approximately 2 miles round trip for which you’re advised to allow about 1 – 1.5 hours, and maps are available at the campground. The trail begins at the Tolsona Wilderness Campground directly across from Campsite F. Along the trail, shiny CDs have been nailed to many trees as trail blazes to mark the route. The trail winds up a hillside and through the forest. About a half mile into the hike, the trail crosses a boggy area. Watch for the CDs, as this part of the trail becomes somewhat unclear. To continue you must pick your way across the bog until you reach the forested area. Hazards: please use caution around mud volcanoes. Some of these pits can be more than 4 feet deep. Bug spray is recommended.
