You do not have to leave the pavement to retrieve this cache. Do not cross the barrier anywhere on this trail, as there are steep cliffs. The parking lots are open from 8am until 7pm. The cache is wheelchair accessible, but there is a hill or two.
The Devil's Slide was used in a key scene of the 1960 thriller Portrait in Black with Lana Turner and Anthony Quinn. Turner and Quinn portrayed doomed lovers who deliberately pushed a car, containing the body of a murdered man, over the edge of the cliff. The Universal crew obtained permission from the State of California to stage the scene, which involved retrieving the car from the bottom of the cliff once the scene had been successfully filmed. The San Mateo Times printed a photograph of the filming of this sequence.
