23 Apr 2017 3:41 PM | Anonymous

Devil's Punchbowl is owned and operated by Los Angeles County Department of Parks & Recreation, but is not like any other park.  It is a totally unique geological wonder.  It is a deep canyon full of enormous spiky chunks of sea sediment that were tilted on their sides by action in the San Andreas, Pinyon and Punchbowl faults.  The Pacific Crest Trail traverses the mountainside looking down not he punchbowl as it descends the San Gabriel Mountains and enters the desert gateway.  

This will be a hiking adventure and a fun opportunity to see an unusual feature of our local landscape that you may not have heard of or made the time to check out yet.  We will definitly hike the one-mile loop trail down into the canyon and back out again, then, as time allow, we can hike a little bit of the Pacific Crest Trail along the mountainside. There is a Visitor Center full of local information that is fun to check out as well.

Parking and admission is Free.

Bring a sack lunch.
