Details

Saturday, November 19-Devil’s Chair, 7 miles RT with some altitude and 1,000 ft gain. This is a gorgeous hike that leaves out of Devil’s Punch Bowl in the Antelope Valley. Bring your camera for superb views. We start by going up a mild incline for the first mile, which seems to be the hardest part of the trail. After this, we depart on a rolling single track at the tree line. Dress in layers…we can encounter wind, snow, rain, or heat…you never know out there! Meet at Towsley Canyon Park in the parking area in front of the entry gate at 8:00 for an 8:15 Carpool departure, or meet at the trail head in Devil’s Punchbowl at 9:15. Bring Camera, lots of water, poles if you have them, shoes with good tread, lunch, snacks, layered clothing and money if you’d like to stop for a date shake on the way back, or at the Hungarian Deli for goodies to take home. Make sure you are in a carpool where everyone wants to stop! Directions to trail head:From Santa Clarita Take CA-14 N toward Palmdale/Lancaster 29.6 mi
