The Devils Armchair is named after a large rock formation just off the high point of the route, that juts sharply out of the forested terrain, perched near the mountain top. From the high point of the trail looking west, you can look out into the great basin and perhaps catch a glimpse of the town of Kanosh, and further west is the Sevier Dry Lake.

The trail is an out and back route, meaning that you will return on the same road you went out on. The lower terrain is mostly graded gravel roads up until the route splits for the first time. The terrain turns to mostly compacted mountain dirt with a few occasional rocks protruding from the road bed. The travel is primarily in the Fishlake National Forest so be sure to check on specific travel and camping regulations on their website:

Great ride on the Piute Trail. Once you head up towards the Devil’s armchair it does get a bit more rocky and washed out but stock vehicle can reach the top no problem. Beautiful view with a picnic area and tables overlooking the Devil’s armchair. Great Ride!
