What a beautiful hike to Little Devils Tower and back 3.8 miles. Temp was about 64 and pure blue skies and sun. It was so awesome when we got to the top to see the 360 degree views. Breathtaking.

Amazing hike and great views!! Highly recommended!!

Beautiful lake, beautiful scenery!!

Very pretty hike!

Numerous beautiful terrains. It was a great hike to take in the scenery. It'll work your legs, so be prepared!

Great trail, well maintained. Only saw two other hikers. Started from the Sheridan Lake trailhead and went about 2.2 miles in and back again. Interesting tunnels along the way.

We took our two dogs clockwise on the trail, moderate difficulty as described was accurately so....until we approached the base of the staircase. It was HARD. We physically had to lift/ assist our 50 and 60 lb dogs across the rough boulders, ice, and freezing water that lay at our feet. If it was just us- no problem- but you WILL have to carry your dog at some point, also- felt more like 8 miles. One of the more technical trails to traverse with a dog.

Easy walk on a road no longer used. Great view at the end. I remember years age being able to drive back there on that road. make sure you read about the history on the pillars in the fenced area. view at the end is spectacular.

Great out and back trail, (little over 5 mi) stream running next to most of the trail, at the end of the trail you can walk on a gravel rd about another 1 and a half mile to get to Dalton lake. popular place for 4 wheelers.
