Ascent Trip Report

I found the trail to the Devils Slide high point to be 1.3 miles further west from the overlook at the St. Peters Dome TH along Gold Camp road. From where the smooth Slide part meets the road it is less than 0.2 miles to the Devils Slide trail head. If you drive too far you enter another high walled narrow section of road. I parked just past where the trail leaves the road. There are a couple birch trees there with carvings on their trunks. A couple of stone pinnacles tower in the background.

The trail is well defined up to the plateau that harbors the large boulder-y outcrops. Some easy scrambling gains the high point and the 360 viewpoints. 25 minutes up and 14 minutes down for me. A short outing with some fun scrambling on top.
