This trail takes you pass several nice rock formations and cedar glades on your way to a bluff overlooking the Lee Creek Valley. The Trail ends at a unique CCC shelter or you can retrace your steps back to the trail head.

Starts off amazing and just gets better! This trail is *very* well-traveled, and fairly easy, if a bit steep at the beginning. We had just hiked 6 miles on the Fossil Flats trails, and decided to "cheat" a bit by not hiking the loop - just out to the big overlook and back (ends up being about 2 miles this way). Will definitely return to hike the entire trail soon.

Nice variety on this trail - big rock formations, woods and stunning views. We hiked to both overlooks with our pups, and everyone was ready for a long nap at the end.

Well worth the hike up! I suggest starting at the trailhead closest to the park, so the decent is at the end of your trail.

Excellent view of forest and a peak at Lee Creek from Yellow Rock. The trail is one of my favorites at Devil's Den.
