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. Alternately, you can join the trail just North of the Twin Lakes community which will take you to the same place by the condos.

      Trail has wild bulls that just walk on it and it is overgrown and in the middle of no wear so good luck if you get stuck

      Don’t do it. Lower part of the trail is just a river in most places right now, you’ll be doing lots of hiking and swimming

      The deadfall that was ~300m north of the Road To Devil junction has been cut, all clear. Logs at the junction are still kinda blocking.
