Directions from Douglas: Take Leslie Canyon Road north. Stay on the main road, which becomes Forest Road 74, for 38 miles. The Devil's Canyon Trailhead is located on Forest Road 74 west of the FR 74E/Camp Rucker Campground intersection.
The first half of the trail from the trailhead on FR 74 (Rucker Canyon Road) to Bruno Saddle was in great condition, visible its entire length. Occasional clusters of catclaw were present, but otherwise it was fine. From Bruno Saddle down to the junction with the North Bruno Trail, it was intermittently visible, and overgrown with grasses and flowers in some places. There are occasional markers to help guide the way, but it can at times take a bit of exploring to find the correct trail. Beautiful views of rock cliffs, grassy meadows, and just a nice area that was unaffected by the Horseshoe II fire.
