Devil's Peak Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"From the pass above the Seven Lakes Basin, this hike scales the summit of Devil’s Peak. When combined with the Seven Lakes Trail, this is the most scenic route in the Sky Lakes.

Devil’s Peak offers one of the classic views of the Southern Cascades. From its 7,552 foot summit, the Seven Lakes Basin spreads out below like blue footprints in a valley carved by glaciers ripping through this landscape 7,000 years ago. The hike is not easy, but it’s not killingly difficult, either. Many people combine this hike with a backpacking trek through the Seven Lakes Basin."

Barbara I. Bond
"The Sky Lakes Wilderness, in the Southern Cascades, is south of Crater Lake National Park and encompasses nearly 120,000 acres of forested wild lands. Sky Lakes is home to the Seven Lakes Basin. Devils Peak, the highest peak in this area, has a forbidding north face; Lee Peak is the second-highest remnant of an old volcano peak. This scramble is a good introduction to the Sky Lakes Wilderness and may be a good entry point for a several-day backpack among the many lakes and tarns in the scenic basins. Special considerations: Prepare for lots of mosquitoes in early season. Snow lingers on the high ridges, particularly in the forest or on northern exposures, into July."
