Devils Canyon starts off going through a sandy and rocky riverbed with loose gravel (from the bottom) and then turns into a more traditional dirt trail. It has a lot of shade so it may be good for the summertime but the sand etc. is still a workout.

Access Info

If you ride up the blacktop road to the condos you can cut in to the right at the end of the bushes. The map shows it coming top down on the way back.

      Lots of poison oak on the lower section. Wear some sort of protection, especially on your calves.

      The poison oak is growing quickly with patches encroaching on the trail all through the section below the dam.

      I've done this ride half a dozen times since summer - there is poison oak off to the sides, but no real risk if you're on the trail.

       Great ride from north to south, except for the multiple steer I encountered. Their horns looked pretty sharp. Eventually the ambled off and I was able to pass.
