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

This is a moderate 1.5 mile hike up to spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains. The last 150+ feet of elevation is to the top of the fire lookout station. We went late afternoon on the weekend and there were no issues with parking. There are a lot of kid's groups that were there at that time. The views from... More

I haven't been for years, but we used to go every year when I was younger. It's a great view of the Rockies and the plains beyond. It's a fun family trip and hike.

We've been there last weekend and enjoyed it a lot. First it is a little bit of a hike on a 9 mile dirt road to get there. Its very bumpy at times, and that part alone takes about half an hour. If you are not early in the morning the parking lot may be crowded already and the trail... More

I try to be positive when I do revues but some times things suck! The drive up to the Devil's Head campgrounds was fairly easy and beautiful. It only took 1 1/2 hours from Monument Colorado. We got in kinda late and got a good spot, being Sunday night, nobody else was there at all. That's when we realized what... More

We took our 9 year old, 4 year old and our 7 year old labrador. We drove on a gravelly, but pretty well maintained, Rampart Range Rd for about 9 miles to the parking area.Get there early or you will be out of luck for parking as this is a very popular hike in the summer time. If you must... More
