Devil's Creek starts at its namesake trailhead just off of the Seward Highway (Hwy 1).

The trail starts with a slight downhill to a bridged creek crossing. Once across, plan on climbing for a good bit. The ascent starts somewhat mellow heading towards the Devil's Creek drainage. Once you turn into the huge valley, the grade steepens as you slowly work your way up to the tundra. The trail is not technical, just a steady grind.

There are several waterfalls, one big one, that you'll cross as you pedal up. As the sound of one fades, another starts to starts to rumble.

As the scrubs transition into the low moss of the tundra, the route flattens a bit and rolls across a few sections of rocky trail. You'll have to pedal consistently and stay balanced to clean everything.

The approach to Devil's Pass is rolling and actually a slightly downhill. When you reach the sign, you'll be surrounded by mountains in a large flat area.

Continue straight to perhaps the most beautiful part of the ride, a string of high alpine lakes. The connection to Resurrection Pass Trail is at the lower end.

 Getting a little brushy, but beautiful 10-mile climb up to the pass was all clear and pedalable!
