It was our first time to hike here. Read reviews on trip advisor and decided to come. There are several different lengths and levels for hiking. We wanted to see the Keyhole which is wonderful. Large bees nest in it so if your allergic just be advised. Also we ignored the warning of Rattle snakes but be aware they are... More

Nice resturant with bar style food, but display and price was wanting to be like a gourment resturant. Nice seating of booths. Good local beers.

On a crisp late Fall day in December my wife and I spent an hour or so hiking the two and half mile Wild Loop trail. There is not a lot of elevation change but you see some interesting sights. We took the lower leg on the way out and had nice views of the hills and buttes to the... More

The famous backbone of The Devil's Backbone Open Space is apparent when you're driving on Highway 34, especially coming from Estes Park. A small sign designates the dirt road to the open space, and although parking is free, there are limited spaces to park, especially on weekends. The open space is actually a protected designated wildlife habitat which features trails... More

Beautiful views, relatively easy hike but the rocks can really heat up during the middle of the day. Gets crowded on weekends and the first part of hike you share the trail with bikers and horses.

WE stumbled across this hike when camping near by. We thought it would be way to difficult for our kids but, we found a path that was easy/moderate for them. We went very early in morning, around 8:30 and it was not too hot, In fact, we had low cloud cover that made the whole place feel rather spooky. WE... More

Very natural trail. The view from the "Hole in the Devils Backbone" is worth the short walk. The trail goes on for miles if you like, but backbone is a short distance from the trail head. Don't miss it if you are in the area..

Stunning views of the Front Range in a geologically fascinating place. Great for hiking, mountain biking, trail running or simply "being". Devil's Backbone is another example of the quality of living in Northern Colorado.
