We chose to hike the Devils Causeway loop in reverse, meaning we ended at Devils Causeway and 3 mile hike to the lot. It is 7.3 miles to the Causeway if you start by going past Mosquito Lake. Only do this the hike this way...More

I love this hike. It is a good work out, but very do-able for a moderate hiker. The landscape changes several times throughout with wildflower meadows, rocky cliffs, lake views and of course the causeway. (you'll also probably hear and see a marmot or 2)....More

My favorite hike—I live 3 hours away but hike it every decade. It kicks my *SS every time—that’s why I LOVE it. And you will too — that is, if you can actually conquer it. 😊

Did the out and back hike to The Devil’s Causeway with my 16 year old son. It was amazing. Couple hours to get up. Not super hard, but will definitely get your lungs working. Beautiful views all along the way, but the vistas from on...More

Firstly, this trailhead and the trail itself is not very well marked. You need to follow signa for trail 1119 and that will get you there. Total roundtrip hike according to my pedometer was 6.7. This is starting at the parking lot going to the...More

This hike is all that others claims it will be! Extreme uphill climbs rewarded with breathtaking views. Our family of 5 ventured to the top. Age range from 17-45. My daughter has struggled with vertigo and waited for us at the bottom of the stairs...More

Wow. First of all...this review is for first-time Causeway goers and novice hikers. I hike a couple times per year, enjoy it, and I'm in good overall shape...just so you know. This hike is tough. If you are a beginner, just be forewarned. First of...More

For us, it rained almost the entire 3 miles to the beginning of the causeway with significant low clouds/fog. This made crossing the very narrow portion interesting to say the least, but doable so long as you kept focus on your points of contact. We...More

First and most importantly: take bug spray!! Thousands of mosquitos are going to eat you if you're not prepared. The area around Stillwater Reservoir is just amazing and truly one of the most beautiful areas I've seen in CO. Park at the trailhead which is...More

Beautiful, well-maintained hiking area with a short (only about 50 feet) narrow causeway that will make those afraid of heights cringe. It is a climb to get to it but only about three miles from the parking lot which is a lot closer than most...More

I have taken my dog and he has done fine with this hike, but it is long and steep and you will need to pack water for your pet.
