Devil’s Slide Trail

Devil’s Slide Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A series of moderately challenging switchbacks leads past scenic views of Lily Rock and pine-covered mountains to Saddle Junction, where you can pick up the Pacific Crest Trail or continue all the way to San Jacinto Peak. With a 1,700-foot elevation gain and an easy-to-follow trail, it’s a good moderate hike that can be done in a couple of hours.

Pick up the trailhead across from the restrooms in Humber Park. Look for the large sign marking the Devil’s Slide Trail and follow the trail north into the boulder-and pine-covered wilderness. The trail gets its name from early-20th-century ranchers who took their cattle to the top to graze before a clear trail was blazed."

"This hike on the pine slopes hugging the community that touts itself as the “most dog-friendly town in America” offers dazzling views of granite outcrops soaring above the valley floor. This trail takes you up to a saddle at the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) and up to the threshold of the pristine Mount San Jacinto State Park Wilderness, where dog- friendliness ends." Read more
