Bolan Lake Trail

Call ahead This experience may be open for on-site visitation; however, offerings and/or operating procedures may have changed due to COVID-19. Please verify details before you go and visit the COVID-19 Resources page for more information.

This trail takes you from the Bolan Lake Campground to the Bolan Mountain Lookout.

The world-renowned biodiversity can be seen from this trail, as it passes through conifer forests and serpentine rock outcrops. The wildflowers in this area are not to be missed! 

Upon reaching the top of Bolan Mountain, views extend for what seems like forever in every direction; the Kalmiopsis, Red Buttes, and Siskiyou Wildnerness are all visible. On clear days, you can even see the Pacific Ocean way off in the distance! 

Please be courteous of those who are staying at Bolan Mountain Lookout. Reservations for the lookout can be made at
