We took some road trips this summer.
One Saturday we went to Devil's Head Lookout. It is a US Forest Service fire lookout southwest of Denver. To get to the lookout tower, we hiked this beautiful 1.4 miles, 951 feet elevation trail.
The Rocky Mountains in the distance.
After a 2 hour hike, we almost got to the Tower. Now climbing 143 stairs.
The fire lookout. The original tower was build in 1912.
On a clear day, they say you can view 100 miles in each direction.
100 miles!!! I think that's pretty cool.
Coming down the stair is much scarier than climbing it!
I took more pictures on the hike down.
All in all, it was a good hike and an afternoon well spent. We will definitely come back to visit.
