Devil’s Head Lookout

May 25, 2018

I have been wanting to do a sunset hike and Devil’s Head in Pikes National Forest seemed like it would be a good one. I arrived at the trailhead about 7:00pm and starting hiking around 7:30. The first sign I noticed was about the EF1 tornado that hit the area on July 21, 2015. Three years later and the area sill looks like a mess, and you can read about the tornado in a Denver Post article here.  Since it was a weekday the parking lot had several spots available.
