“Punchbowl”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

The punchbowl is such a lovely place to hike. It is really easy if you aren't a big hiker, and has a nice little stream at the bottom. A really strenuous trail there is the devil's chair, but the view is totally worth it!

“Devil’s Punchbowl Natural Area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

A nice moderate hike at nearly 5,000 feet, take it serious and be prepared. Love the geology and the great views. Another SoCal surprise, this is an LA County Park, a bit rustic and that is the point of a natural area... right? Area was formed by the Punchbowl and Pinyon Faults and pressure from the San Andreas Fault.

“Interesting geology”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

Devils Punchbowl is a natural bowl created by the intersection of two earthquake faults. There is a small museum at the site and several information kiosks. A long trail circles the bowl and a few shorter trails. There are not a lot of facilities but it is worth a stop if this type of thing interests you. The earth has been folded and distorted and it's good for scenic photos.

“Beautiful and peaceful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

Great place to hike, picnic and enjoy the beautiful scenery with all the family. We saw a desert fox by chance which was cool. Will definitely be coming back in the near future to do the Devils Chair hike and take advantage of the BBQ and picnic area.
