Activity: Hiking, Nature Photography
Difficulty: Moderate (8.4 Miles with 1000 ft. elevation gain)
The scene: Two earthquake faults collide, creating upwards jutting vertical walls as high as 300 feet!!! INCREDIBLE.
The Result: A spectacular setting, with the high desert spreading out on one side, and the pine covered Angeles National forest on the other. THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS.
Your mission (should you choose to accept it): Your hike will take you along the mostly shaded rim of the Punchbowl, to the dramatic Devil’s Chair, a breathtaking overlook with 360 degree views of the geologic formations. A rainbow of rock surrounds the Devils Chair with pink streaked chalk white cliffs, undulating tan crags, chocolate brown slabs, and green-gray ledges. This, combined with the green of the mountains and the blue sky, makes for a memorable image. PRIME.
In sum: Come out and play for a Day of Devilishly Dashing Delights!
