“A meandering route that leads to a narrow promontory in Devil's Punchbowl.”— Jason Ethridge
By the time that you transition to the (Devil's) Punchbowl Trail, most of the climbing is done, and the trail meanders eastward, through mixed forest, along the lower flanks of the mountains. Enjoy views of the canyon to the north, but watch your footing as some sections of the trail are narrow and/or washed out. At the 3-mile mark, the trail begins a sharp, switchbacked, descent into the canyon. At the bottom of the descent, take the trail to the left and head west to Devil's Chair.
Soon, as the trail skirts the canyon wall, there will be railings to keep hikers from falling. These continue out to the tip of the promontory, which is completely fenced. Enjoy the views, and take a breather, before climbing back out of the canyon to return the way you came.
