I started from a parking area located a short distance above the dam that separates the Cascade Lakes. I walked down across the dam and followed the trail from there. A short distance after leaving the dam, I came across a trail sign. I followed the path marked as the Palisades Trail. About a half-mile later I left the trail at a rocky area and headed directly towards the mountain. On the way I had to drop down towards a meadow, with a dirt road running along its far side. Devils Peak is directly above this road. After crossing the road I worked my way up to the south side of the peak, attempting to stay out of the brush as much as possible. Unfortunately, I was unable to completely avoid it. When I reached the cliffs the route to the summit was obvious. From the parking area to the summit it took me about 90 minutes. A good dirt road leads to the parking area, which is located off of Pahatsi Road. For more information on this mountain see Pete Yamagata's booklet on Northern Sierra Peaks.
