NOT THE USUAL DEVIL'S PUNCHBOWL HIKE (the 1-mile loop everyone else does....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz or the Devil's Chair)

Difficulty: MODERATE, but nothing too crazy. Several 200 foot gains in elevation.

DISTANCE: only 5 miles or so, because climbing up and around rocks is SLOW!

GEOLOGY: http://devils-punchbowl.com/pages/nhistory/geology/geology.pdf

----------------------------

Elevation is around 4600 feet
