Devil’s Backbone Loops Professional Review and Guide
"Hike up and down hogbacks and along the distinctive Devil’s Backbone rock formation, experiencing the interesting geology ?rsthand. The area’s human history is explained on several interpretive signs and in a trail guide available at the trailhead. Red-tailed hawks, ravens, swallows, and a great horned owl nest in the niches of the Backbone formation.
The views are great, too! From prairie to rocky ridges to a lush little gully, the trail constantly changes. With three possible loops, you can ?nd a short or long hike to suit your fancy. The trail system winds for over ?fteen miles through
Devil’s Backbone Open Space, up to Horsetooth Mountain Open Space and Lory State Park. About midway, it connects with Coyote Ridge Natural Area to the east."
