Enjoy the remarkable tectonic scenery of Devil’s Punchbowl Natural Area and its smooth, angular, uplifted sedimentary rocks. Hike high above through shrub forests of pinyon and Coulter pine, incense cedar, and the occasional Joshua tree for an awe inspiring view of the Devils Punchbowl formation from the vista point known as the Devils Chair.

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! (Date hiked: April 9, 2011.) Read the full write-up at: www.greeneadventures.com/2011/04/19/devils-chair-in-devils-punchbowl-straddling-the-san-andreas-fault/
