  • We had a great time hiking Devils Backbone. The trail is relatively easy and the views are gorgeous. There were tons of children and families on the trail and its suitable for all abilities. I would recommend the hike to the Keyhole, the views are stunning! Devil’s Backbone Open Space is just lovely. You can view it with various slow drive boys or park the car and get a closer view.
  • This was a really nice hike. We went on a Friday morning in July. It was super clear and heating up quickly. The heat made it seem a bit more challenging than you would think from just considering distance and elevation. There’s not really any shade on the trail. It still was not bad, and well worth getting to walk along such a cool geologic feature! It definitely inspired our curiosities. It took about 30-45 minutes each way with afee short breaks. We took a lower connecting path on the way back in, and one of the ten or twelve bicyclists that passed us scolded us about that section being off limits for hikers. I don’t know whether that is true, but all of the other users we passed were very pleasant and friendly!
