Devil's Canyon, so far as anyone knows, is so named because the pinnacles, needles and balanced rocks that form its canyon walls resemble distorted human forms.

The Devil's Canyon/North Bruno Trail system offers access into an area of remote canyons, odd rock formations and bluff-faced peaks on the south end of the Chiricahua Mountains. Devil's Canyon, so far as anyone knows, is so named because the pinnacles, needles and balanced rocks that form its canyon walls resemble distorted human forms. The trail leaves Rucker Canyon Road and heads upcanyon under the watchful eye of these devil rocks, as it wanders its way among riparian stands of sycamore, willow and ash. This vital streamside habitat provides an excellent place to enjoy a little bird watching and perhaps catch a glimpse of some larger wildlife before the trail leaves the canyon floor to begin this gradual climb, though oak and juniper, to Bruno Saddle.

Forest Road 74 can be sued to make a loop incorporating part of the Devil's Canyon Trail and the North Bruno Trail.

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.
