Description

This short section of trail should probably be combined with the Devil's Head Trail, which is only described to the meadow. This is the final route up from the meadow to the last remaining fire lookout on the Front Range. Most of the trail is made of metal stairs (stay away in lightning) that quickly ascend a gap between Devil's Head and a secondary summit. At the top of the stairs, there is a short section that heads south on top of the huge rock that is Devil's Tower. A fence will help guide you and offer support. You'll then reach the tower, which you can climb into for the highest views!
