At the end of a long drive south of New Grant TRINIDAD, the twenty or so vents are in a well maintained, safe field, with a kids play park and picnic benches. The tallest 'volcano' had a 3' tall cone of mud while all the others were shorter than 12" tall. Most had small gassy bubbles coming to surface but... More

To the civilian non-geologist, Devil's Woodyard is an ugly place where the planet "passes gas!" To the geologically inclined, it's a really interesting place - a MUD Volcano! No red hot lava, just hot smelly gases blurting out every now and then, in unattractive gloops and glops! Most people wouldn't want to see it again, having seen it once, but... More

The Devils wood yard is on all the maps as a tourist attraction to visit. It was quite difficult to find and it really helped having the waypoint in my GPS. [ -61.33158°W 10.27526°N ]The road to the attraction has a number of landslides where it is down to one lane. The mud volcano first appeared in 1852. Local legend... More

its basically a wide open park area, with 'mud volcanoes' so small, its so unamazing and disappointing that you'll exclaim "thats it?"...go to Bunsee Trace mud volcano or Piparo mud volcano.

I visited this woodyard,but much to my preference it was nothing i expected apart from a small mound of mud bubbling because of some activity underground,but nothing too spectular to even take a picture.

A nice place to take a family with small children for a few hours....... Don't expect much in terms of "volcanos" though. The mud volcanos are small piles of mud that are one foot to two feet tall that bubble and occasionally belch.... much to the delight of the children. There is a small neatly groomed playground and picnic park... More
