Devils Doorway Loop Professional Review and Guide
"This hike may have more highlights per step than any other hike in the greater Madison area. From the south shore of Devils Lake, you will hike up through an incredible boulder garden, gaining views of the lake and surrounding bluffs with every step. You will then come to Balanced Rock, an illusionary rock formation. From there, take the East Bluff Trail away from Devils Lake, soaking in vistas galore from high rock bluffs. Take a spur to the Devils Doorway, a rockfall arch that resembles an open door suspended in midair. From there gain more views, then descend a crazy path through seemingly inhospitable rock jumbles. Level out and walk through a wooded state natural area at the base of East Bluff, gazing at the cliffs above."
