The first four miles have steep, uphill grades, slight decline after pass. Well maintained though may be wet/muddy in places. Snow along trail and at Devils Pass may persist into early summer. The out-and-back route eventually reaches the Resurrection Pass Trail after hiking trekking through boreal rain forests.

Trailhead is on west side of Seward Highway, Mile 39. Trail is closed to saddle/packstock from April 1-June 30 and closed to motorized vehicles year-round.

Overall, Devils Pass is the 8th most popular hiking trail of all 54 hikes in Alaska. Several of the better hiking trails are nearby Devils Pass including Resurrection Pass Trail, Russian Lakes Trail, Primrose/Lost Lake Trail, Winner Creek Trail, Cresent Lake Hiking Trail and Johnson Pass TrailPtarmigan Creek Trail.
