This is an easy hike but requires lots of water, sunscreen, pair of great hiking shoes and a wide rim hat. There is not much shade here, must make it to Devils chair, it's we're all the breath taking views awaits!

We love Devils punchbowl the terrain is interesting and varied. There is a small ranger station with some exhibits and a few different trails for different abilities. Interesting rock formations and lots of different plants.

I went during the summer, which was a mistake, but still I was able to get the gist of the location, and I want to go back, when it's not so hot. It's fascinating geography, and I'd love to walk down to the bottom, on the trail. But when I went, it was way too hot.

Had an excellent hike here during the summer. We had a 10 y/o and 7y/o with us, they didn't have a problem. Hiked early in the morning, so the heat wasn't an issue. Be sure to take water. Trail not well marked down at the bottom, got off the trail once, but found it again without a problem. Kids absolutely... More

Beautiful, wonderful serene park. We are seniors and easily hiked the mile hike into the Canyon. Will visit whenever we are in the area. Love the little museum.

Great place to see the San Andreas fault exposed. It's on my list of places to take people from out of town. You get to see the high desert, the fault, get a quick hike in...and if you are adventurous there are several hikes in the mountains. My favorite hike is to Saddleback ridge. Best for experienced hikers in good... More

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
