“Spectacular Rock Formations”

Devil's Backbone Nature Trail

Attraction details
Reviewed June 12, 2014

These trails are a great way to see the fabulous rock formations that make up the Devils Backbone. There are lots of different lengths and difficulties to choose from, all well maintained and marked. You also get great views of the Rocky Mountains off in the distance in one directions and verdant grasslands in the other.

Wear sturdy boots, bring water, sunscreen and binoculars. Expect to be wowed whether you hike the entire trail or mostly enjoy the scenery as I did on this trip.

The best time to hike Devil's Backbone, off of Hwy. 34, west of Loveland, CO, is during the fall/winter/early spring months when the rattlesnakes aren't out, but it's a beautiful trail anytime. It's a bit hot in the summer, so bring sunscreen, a hat and lots of water! Beautiful views though!

This trail is close to town, but it feels like miles away. Love taking the trail all the way to Horsetooth for a nice, all day hike. It's pretty quiet on the trail and no water options, so pack smart. There tends to be more bikers who complete the trail, instead of hikers.
