Hero: Devils Head Trailhead and Campground Road
small-sr Icon

Located in Pike National Forest, this road provides access to the Devil's Head hiking trail (FS 611) and nearby camping roads. The trail was constructed in 1907 after the recently formed Forest Service decided to build seven fire lookouts along the Front Range of Colorado into Wyoming. The Forest Service built only three, and Devil's Head is the last one remaining that is in operation. Climbing to the top of the tower will give you 360-degree views for over 100 miles on a clear day from this Colorado landmark. This is a simple dirt road with small rocks embedded in the road with no major obstacles.
