Devils Chair Professional Review and Guide
"This memorable hike leads into the intriguing rock formations of the Devils Punchbowl at the northern foot of the San Gabriel Mountains. The Devils Punchbowl is another of California’s many striking rock formations. Lying at the northern foot of the San Gabriel Mountains along the San Andreas Rift Zone, this unusual, highly eroded sandstone-conglomerate-shale formation is especially interesting. The trail leads hikers to its best viewpoint, the Devils Chair, where the entire hellish landscape of the Punchbowl spreads out to the north, with the barrens of the Mojave Desert fading into the distance beyond. This hike can be taken as a leisurely overnighter. Backpackers will find good campsites in Holcomb Canyon next to the creek."
