Hiked this trail a Saturday morning, it is 1.4 miles to the fire lookout. The trail path is very will marked with benches along the way to stop and rest. Once o the tower you go up 143 steps. The view from the tower is spectacular. The views along the whole trail is fantastic.

Go early in the day to avoid the crowds. This must be a popular hike. A website I looked at said medium difficulty. I'd say challenging. It's only 3 miles but all incline, an elevation gain of 940'. Dogs on leashes are allowed. At the top are 143 steps to the fire lookout tower. The view is beautiful but I... More

Took out of state guests to hike one of our favorite hikes and never thought it would be so full of people and dogs! It's past the holiday so no more Park Ranger and evidently not much of any maintenance. Bags of dog poop were piled up in front of the bathrooms at the trailhead. No garbage cans for them.... More

Great hike; fairly short with a great reward of the fire watch tower view at the end. If you are afraid of heights getting up to the tower may be a little scary but the view is worth it! I'm visiting from Minnesota so the altitude makes what is probably considered an easy hike to locals a nice challenge for... More

This hike was perfect for my family! It was me, who is pretty good shape, my husband who is in really good shape, teen daughter, and two boys ages 6 and 4 who love hiking. The hike up was beautiful and the trail is in good shape, the views on the way up are just breathtaking and the hike was... More

Getting there was half the adventure. Devi's Head is located in an ATV playland/campground. You have to drive miles on a dirt road before reaching the parking lot for Devil's Head. I made the climb to lookout tower with my 9 and 11 year old. The trail starts off by hiking through a majestic Aspen forest, which gave us time... More

Great short trail with amazing views at the top! Steep climb especially for those not used to the altitude, but totally worth it.

It is so beautiful at the top and climbing up to the lookout station theview is like no other. The climb was hard and pretty step. I would almost compare to hanging lake. Not as difficult but close enough for government work. Went with hubby and another couple. Lots of pics we're taken and my hubby's phone died. Lol. Well... More

Who knew?!! This was a great hike (over 1.5 miles one way) that got our hearts beating! A climb pretty much all of the way but very pretty with aspen, rock outcrops and views. Once you get to the end of the trail there is a cabin where the ranger lives out of in the summertime. Nice board with the... More
