Trail Information

Highlights

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 that they would 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' views for over 100 miles on a clear day from this Colorado landmark.

Went out to patrol trails today and there are no changes to report to this write up at this time. The rough spots have been graded and this is now a 1 throughout.
