I'm a city gal. So when my boyfriend suggested a hike up Devil's Head, I was naturally intimidated. I'm in fairly good shape for a middle aged woman so I say "what the heck". It was wonderful. We stopped from time to time but eventually made it all the way to the top! The views are breath taking. The trail... More

If you can tough out driving on Rampar Range road (doable in a standard sedan, but very rough and pot holed), then it's a fun thing to climb up to the fire lookout for the fantastic view. Otherwise, unless you are into dirt bikes and ATVs, there is nothing much else of interest.

The trailhead to this trail is a little bit of a drive on Rampart Range Rd past lots of camp sites and ATV trails but well worth it. The trail is very well maintained with lots of firs, pines, and rock outcroppings along the way. The views on the way up are gorgeous but can't beat the view from the... More

One of the most beautiful views in all of Colorado. A short hike to the top of Devil's Head, easy on kids and adults. the fire station at the top is open to all.

The trail is short (approximately 1.5 miles) but the gain in elevation is what makes the hike a challenge. Then there are the steps to get to the lookout tower. We have it easy. I've heard the rangers who live there must have their supplies packed in by mule. Worth the climb. Go early. Pack a lunch and eat it... More

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
