Devil’s Peak is about a mile S.E. of Mt. Mooney. It is a high point overlooking Devil’s Canyon and the rugged area around Twin Peaks, with views of many peaks and canyons of the San Gabriels. On the way up the ridge from a dirt road, you will pass through a small forest of Coulter Pines. While Coulters are rather small as pine trees go, their cones are spectacular - the largest of all pine cones. They are not a rare tree, but their range is limited. Enjoy this walk through one of the best concentrations of these interesting trees.

To reach both these peaks, take the dirt road off Angeles Crest Highway, about a hundred feet northwest of the Charlton Flat entrance road. Follow this road about a mile up to a wide spot on the ridge top where the road forks, and park. A National Forest Adventure Pass is required to be displayed on your vehicle when parked at the trailhead.
