Beautiful day for a hike definitely worth checking out. The pictures don't do it justice

Easy trail with more than one path to take. Nice views and not too many people.

Devil's Head Lookout trail was a wonderful hike for my 8 year old and I. We went Thanksgiving week and there was a ton of snow and ice for both tires and feet. We aren't from Colorado, so we didn't expect that much ice on the trail. My son wasn't in the proper footwear and fell down a lot. In case you weren't aware... Rampart Range Rd is entirely dirt south of 67. Other than that, the trail was great!

Beautiful trails on 6500-7500 mostly in the forest with some views. Navigation is easy after the first snow, just follow the mountain bike traces. Most of the incline happens towards the end, so pace yourself carefully.

Hiked this on 11/19/17. The incline wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be; it's steep but steady all the way to the peak. Views don't really open up until you're about two-thirds in; then it's 14ers as far as the eye can see! Trail was covered in snow, not so much ice. Still, winter traction (and gear) is essential during this time of the year. The peak/summit was really windy (and cold), so I didn't stay long at the top. If I did it again, I'd probably go late summer/early fall.

Great trail to escape the crowds. Not well maintained though with lots of uphill on loose gravel.

Great mountain and city views. Partial shared trails with mountain bikers but everyone was very courteous with call outs. Recommend
