Been here a few times. The small building has various local animal and area information. The rangers inside are very nice, friendly and informative. You can tell they love their job. Then there's a ton of hiking and exploring to do. Went to the Devil's...More

I've tried several hikes around the devils punchbowl, but there is a 1-mile loop within the devils punchbowl that is great for begineers. I've heard some begineers take around 2+ to finish the loop. There is certainly an elevation difference that can take a toll....More

I saw the sign for Devil's Punchbowl on my drive into the mountains. It was well worth the detour. My first stop was the visitors center, a small spot filled with area animals, including many live snakes behind glass. I was reassured that it was...More

It is a beautiful place to visit in all seasons. We share it with friends when they visit our area. It is so much nicer than driving to the city to some amusement park! A Natural treat.

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!

From what I’ve hiked, no. I haven’t made it all the way to Devils Chair so I don’t know if there is a picnic spot at the end. There are plenty of places to stop and eat but the aren’t actual designated picnic areas.
