It's iconic, it's a must-do, and it's great. Take the Devil's Backbone route. This is a tough hike, so make sure you have a basic level of fitness, plenty of water, some extra layers, and food.

Unfortunately all the signs have been stolen, so it's not the easiest trail to follow. For easy turn-by-turn directions, check out my blog post.

Loved this trail. So cool to leave a note at the tree at the top. The view is awesome. Did it in the snow and it was freezing at the top!

Such a fun trail. The incline makes it challenging in some places, but that's the point. Awesome workout, beautiful scenery. It doesn't get much better than this.

I've been on this trail hundreds of times and it is always a great trail, no matter the time of year. Many parts of the trail are covered in trees, and a rushing stream beside the trail, this is a great hike. Another consideration is that there is a short drive time on mountain roads as well. My favorite by far!

Nice trail but very busy, especially on the weekend. Get there early for parking. There was water at Columbine Spring.
