Devils Den to Dog Canyon
« on: November 20, 2014, 04:13:40 PM »
I read a thread on this before, but can't seem to find it in the search.  If we hike out to Devils Den, it looks like we should be able to leave via the east side of Devil's Den and follow the ridge north to come back through Dog Canyon.  Looks pretty straight-forward.  Any issues with this?

We've hiked all over the park, but never done those, despite having driven past them dozens of times.

That's what I was looking for. Thanks!

Just realized I posted this in the wrong forum.

Moderator Note: Thanks for pointing that out. I hadn't noticed...
