Elev Gain


This is an out and back trail that mostly climbs around Devil's Punchbowl up to Devil's Chair in Pleasant View Ridge Wilderness. It is a fairly narrow trail and the mild elevation gain is amply rewarded with dramatic views from the Devil's Chair lookout.

This trail goes by Devils Chair.

Getting Started

There is a large parking area with the trailhead on the South East side of the lot.

Taking Children

This hike is fairly easy overall. The first mile is relatively exposed as is the l last, but there is a good amount of shade in between. A child of 10+ should be able to handle this trail without issues. If you have younger children, you may want to keep an eye on them as there are are a few slippery spots where the trail is a little narrow.
