Devils Head Recreation Area closes for construction
Devils Head Trail, an iconic out and back 2.5-mile Colorado Front Range hike that ends with a 143 step climb to the historic fire lookout closed in July. The Pike-San Isabel National Forests & Cimarron and Comanche National Grasslands South Platte Ranger District closed the entire Devils Head Recreation area for construction through December 1, 2021 or until rescinded, whichever comes first.
“We are working to upgrade the utilities which is paramount to the continued operation of this very popular recreation area,” said District Ranger Brian Banks. “We look forward to seeing everyone next season.”
The closure prohibits going into or being upon the restricted area, being on the restricted roads and being on the restricted trails.
