Trail starts at Devils Punchbowl County Park. Take the burkhart trail south of the lot. You will do the bulk of the climbing in the first mile a portion of which is on a dirt road. At the 1 mile mark the trail becomes a nice single track and the views begin to improve.You will cross a couple small creeks, (you won't get wet) The trail stays pretty flat until about the 3 mile mark. it then descends to the devils chair. There are nice views of the Mojave Desert. The chair is interesting if not a bit anticlimactic (there are better views at other spots along the trail) but a nice photo op. & miles a really nice moderate hike.
