DESCRIPTION: This is a fun hike that highlights the San Andreas Rift that cuts across the desert side of the San Gabriels. The Devil’s Punchbowl County Park has many resources for children and many interesting geological features along this famous earthquake fault. In 1963 this unique geological formation became a Los Angeles County Park. Many unique desert species can be seen in this area, including reptiles, birds, and early spring flowers!

HOW TO GET TO THE TRAILHEAD: Take SR 14 NORTH  to 138 east, to Longview Road. Turn Right. Then turn left onto Ft. Tejon Road, followed by a quick right onto Devil’s Punchbowl Road. The road dead-ends at Devil’s Punchbowl Natural Area.
