The Devil's Punchbowl Trail is steep with many switchbacks; however, it can be enjoyed by the average hiker at slow pace. The two picturesque lakes and spectacular views of surrounding mountain peaks and valleys make this popular among more experienced hikers. No camping is possible at trail end; camp at Trout Camp at the Doe Flat-Clear Creek junction.
