Easy, scenic. Loved this hike. Trail in good condition and the view at Devil's Chair is amazing. Especially if you like geology and land formation. Went in the afternoon, so got shade almost whole way back.
A great 7.74 mile dog-friendly hike into a geological wonderland called Devil’s Punchbowl out to the Devil’s Chair, right on top of the San Andreas Fault. Located where the Mojave Desert meets the Angeles National Forest, the rock formations and landscape are amazing, and if you pick up the visitor’s guide at the visitor’s center or research it in advance, quite educational!

the trail must have been improved because it was in great shape when we were there. very easy to follow even with some spots covered in snow. the rangers at the station are very helpful and will provide you with a great map and directions to the trailhead. the rocks are cool and the views of the mountians and the desert are beautiful.
