Dayhike Devil's Head

Ignore the map and the directions. Please read the directions I have provided.

Wadsworth

Directions to the Wadsworth and Hampden park-n-ride:From Wadsworth Blvd. & Hampden, continue south on Wadsworth Blvd. to W. Jefferson Ave. Right on W. Jefferson Ave., into park-n-Ride. If you are going West on 285 (Hampden) take the Wadsworth exit. Turn left at the stoplight. Go one block and turn right. The PnR will be on your right. We will leave from the park-n-ride at 8:45 am.

Directions to the trailhead: Drive South on Santa Fe to Sedalia. Turn right onto Co. 67. Go 9.7 miles and turn left onto Rampart Range road. Go 8.8 miles and bear left onto the entry road to Devil's Head lookout tower. The road ends at the trailhead parking lot.

The hike: 2.8 miles and worth it. It's listed as strenuous but it's not that bad. 1,000 feet of elevation gain in 1.4 miles. And then the steps up to the fire tower. The last active fire tower used in Colo. The watchman may be gone by then but we can still climb the stairs and enjoy the view.

    Breathtaking panoramic views, good to get out of the Denver heat.

    This hike sounds great! If we could do it (again?) next Saturday that would be ideal for me. My car is in the shop this Saturday.. :(
