An extension to the Devils Backbone that takes you into some scenic places. A 3.5 mi. extension to the Devils Backbone Interpretive Trail. After a short but fairly steep up hill you will enter a rolling plateau that has some awesome views of the CO foothills with Longs Peak in the background. If you're quiet and observant you may see some deer along with other wildlife. For an area that is so close to civilization the quiet and solitude of this place is a nice respite. The views of the Devils Backbone from the summit gives a different view to this geological wonder.

My friend Todd and I, from Florida, were on an assignment in the area and decided to check out Devils Backbone. It was an AMAZING surprise! We had a great time and loved it.

Great views. Well maintained. The Keyhole is a good photo opportunity. Can be muddy as ice melts. Began at Wild Loop and turned around at beginning of Blue Sky. Total of 6 miles and 4 hours at leisurely pace.

Super nice trail. Only downside is that it is a bit busy on the weekend, I can see myself going back.

Good for what it is. Very accessible but usually pretty crowded on weekends.
