Hiking “The Devil’s Punch Bowl” Angeles National Forest

The Devil’s Punch Bowl Park is a Los Angeles County Park with a large parking lot, picnic areas, restrooms, drinking fountains and a Nature center with several hiking trails that are very well-maintained.

On August 4, 2020, at 6 a.m., my little dog Toby and I hiked into The Devil's Punch Bowl located in the beautiful Angeles National Forest.

The Devil's Punch Bowl is a Los Angeles County Park and the trails here are very well-maintained with a large parking lot, picnic areas, restrooms, drinking fountains and a Nature center.

Hours of operation/address and contact info

The park is opened from sunrise to sunset and you do not need a National Forest "Adventure pass" to park there. The Nature center is closed on Mondays and opened 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sundays.

The address to the park is: 28000 Devil's Punchbowl Rd. Pearblossom, CA 93553 and phone number is (661) 944-2743.

I found Google Maps to be very accurate with directions to the park, and the drive into the mountainous forest was spectacular.

Arriving at the Park

Upon arrival at 6 a.m. into the parking lot, I exited the car and felt very small standing next to the mighty 8,000 foot mountains all around me. The wildlife, flora, trees and vegetation here are breathtaking and we were even met by a deer who was casually strolling by on one of the trails.

This park has so much to offer for free: school programs, guided hiking tours, parties and a telescope program.

The trails can be used for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding; however, there are no motorized vehicles allowed on the trails. The trails are clean, maintained and clearly marked and you can enter the punch bowl from either the left or right just passed the visitor's center.

I took the trail to the left and started my downward trek into the bowl.

I use hiking poles on every hike I go on and can't say enough about how useful and handy they are. They are especially beneficial to use going up and down the hills or on uneven ground, and I suppose the best way to describe hiking poles is that they are just like stabilizers to help keep your balance, not to mention you can also get a great arm workout.

I highly recommend this hike and the many other trails that are in the area. You will not be dissatisfied.

Happy hiking.
