Highlights

Highlight: Devils Head Campground Road - FS 300.Q
This trail in Pike National Forest is one of two paid camping areas at the base of the Devil's Head (FS 611) walking trail. Devil's Head is located off Rampart Range Road and was constructed in 1907 after the newly formed Forest Service decided that they would build seven fire lookouts along the Front Range of Colorado into Wyoming. Only three were actually built and Devil's Head is the only one still in operation. Drive this trail and climb up to the top of the Devil's Head tower and get 360' views of Colorado for over 100 miles on a clear day.

Rating:
This camping spur near Devil's Head is only a 1 in terms of trail difficulty but the camping here is some of the best in the area. If we decide to camp close to home, this is a new option for us.

Mapping Crew - Colorado

Jen & JD moved to Colorado from Chicago in May of 2015 for work and brought with them a 2001 stock Jeep Wrangler that had been garage bound for two years. Within a month of arrival, all rusty 170,000 miles of it was shaking on Colorado trails and they've never stopped. As time as gone on, their 2001 TJ had to be traded and a 2015 Jeep JK has been added to the family. JD works as a Systems Engineer for a cable company and Jen runs a business from their home during the week to pay the bills. When the weekend hits, they're almost always hitting the trail. When Sunday night rolls around, the question turns to, 'so what's next week?!'.
