Just saw a signpost and followed it. A wonderful discovery.! We got a warm welcome and very friendly advice. Loved the display os snakes and animals and especially the owls. Nice walks. Wish we could spend much more time walking there. Hope to return again.

My kids love reptiles. This time snakes were awake. It is great to see them in action. The ranger is very helpful and friendly. He helped us to identify some lizards we have caught in the past to take a picture. It is best to go as early in the morning as you can if you want to roam the... More

Wonderful hiking experience. The scenery is nice, and has a "pre historic" feel to it. I wandered around the loop trail (moderate level on some parts). Nice views and small stream was running. Popular area, parking lot was almost full when I arrived around 9 am. Lots of picnic tables and barbecues near the visitor center. There are some live... More

This is a fabulous place to see snowcapped mountains and huge Desert Vista is only a couple hours out of Los Angeles. It's a county park so it's absolutely free, and on our visit the park ranger was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and friendly.

Incredible views and opportunity for personal reflection and prayer. Be sure to stop by the Ranger Station to see the exhibits and learn about how the Punchbowl was created.

The round trip is 7.4 miles and takes roughly three hours to complete for an intermediate hiker. The first 0.9 miles from the trailhead is a gradual incline. Signs to Devil's Chair are well positioned. At the trail fork (take the left fork) the trail remains relatively flat until just after the 3.0 mile marker. Then there is a series... More

Devils Punchbowl in Pearblossom Ca is a real nice place to take the family. It has a few hiking trails from easy to difficult. The one mile loop down in the Punchbowl itself is a little step at times however worth the struggles. The is also a nice little Nature center one can take the little ones to and see... More

The Devil's Punchbowl is a large depression that has two ring trails around the top and one leading into the basin. The site is one of the only places to hike in the AV and is good for a quick day long getaway. The wife and I went there and hiked the loop in less than 3 hours (we're hikers).... More

The Punch bowl name, I get it, the short trail with 1 mile length is really a giant bowl-shape basin that's punched by some huge troll long time ago. Really fun and not that hard for any age. The rocks are easily to be explored and sighted in any viewpoint. And the Devil's Chair one is 3.5 miles long and... More
