    Joaquin de Artola reviewed Devils Chair Trail

    almost 2 years ago

    Great Trail! Completed in 3 hours with a 30min break at the chair ! I also added the 1 mile loop at the Devils Punch Bowl and it was great. Park Ranger helped me find the trail head near the parking lot. The worst part of this whole thing is hope you do not have to use the restroom. Go before you get there. They are terrible. Trail starts with a moderate incline and then levels out in the shade. Towards the end there are some steep parts of the trail but manageable with or without trekking poles. I had them and I was happy I brought them. The view is great and worth it all!!! Only other thing is there are some parts where the trail gets small and there is a drop off but i wouldnt say its very drastic but it might deter a newbie. I started late at 8:30am I went through 2.5 litres bring water and a snack. I only logged 7.65 miles on the chair hike I don't know what everyone is talking about. More if you add the punchbowl loop. Couple dogs on the trail I did it solo. It was very well maintained and there was moderate traffic =)

    I had to give this 5 stars Even though I wanted to give it 3 HAHA!!! I Backpacked this trail in four days!
    Avalon to Blackjack... Blackjack to Two Harbors... Two Harbors To Parsons Landing... Parsons Landing Back To Two Harbors.

    First things first at least the mistakes and mishaps I made.
    -BRING TREKKING POLES!!!! please just trust me on this one. I will never go anywhere with out them now because of this trip!! HAHA
    -We did not realize that Avalon to blackjack would be about 17.5 miles.not including walking around avalon to check into the campsites... Almost everyone we talked to that had completed the TCT include the shortcut near the golf course that takes about 6 or 7 miles off the first day so PLEASE BE READY FOR AN INSANE FIRST DAY if you start from mile 1!!!!It was a lot with full packs
    -On the First Day We ran out of water and luckily found water at a little playground near the reservoir not AT the reservoir. It really saved us but we wasted about 30 min looking for a spout at the viewing area and around the reservoir.
    -Make sure to have a map and a compass we where pushed off trail a couple times because of an "Occupy TCT" by the bison and having basic compass and map skills really came in handy.

    Day1 Avalon TO BJ
    -17.5 miles.
    -Awesome Views
    -Toilets Smell... But are better than packing out waste!!!

    Day 2 BJ to TH
    13.6 miles
    -Get lunch at the airport!!! Great pick me up!
    -Wished we had stayed an extra day at Little Harbor
    -AMAZING VIEWS probably the best of the trip

    Day 3 TH to Parsons
    -We Did not add the extra 9 miles RT to Starlight due to injury =( but Parsons is worth it so =)
    -Big inclines bring trekking poles
    -Big Declines BRING TREKKING POLES
    -Amazing ridgeline views
    -Fenceline trail is Crazy
    -Parsons is So Beautiful

    Day 4
    8.1miles
    - Take the coastline trail back towards emerald bay boy scout camp
    -So Much Easier than Fenceline Trail and awesome coves and harbors

    Its a great trail for walking and running. There are a couple different paths around so you can always switch up
