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

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

We hit the trail to head up to the causeway around 4pm and reached the top around 6:30. The views were incredible, and I was surprised that so many people found the 3 foot walkway too much for crossing. If it weren't for the drop...More

Hiked Devil's Causeway yesterday and the snow fields are still a little too deep to cross without a major workout. It should melt off in about two weeks. Even still, a great hike. One point that I could not find on any of the sites,...More

A wonderful hike that's about 3 miles from the car park to the top of the mountain where you find the Devils Causeway. The Causeway is a 3 foot wide rocky cliff that scares some people with it's 40-50 foot drops either side. The view...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.
