Access use to be via hwy 14 and forest road 299. Due to a dispute with local land owners, the gate at the beginning of 299 has been locked for a few years now (currently 2014). Barts trail must now be accessed from the upper end via Faulty or Crest Trail.
The blocking of fr299 also prevents vehicle access to Cole Springs Campground.

This trail has some breath taking views, and so much shade! The trees made this a better trail than anything the franklin mountains has. Take water and bug spray, it's monsoon season so the Mosquitos are annoying on this trail but other than that, totally worth the drive from El Paso.

Great Hike for visitors and locals alike. Easy drive from Denver. Easy short hike, and fantastic views. there is a great article about this site in the 5280 Magazine. See Link: http://www.5280.com/blogs/2012/10/23/outdoors-devils-head-hike

Did anyone mention to get there early? Not to bad if you get there late morning, just a lot of people, but i have found the early-morning hikers to be much friendlier and more willing to say "hi" and chat than the late-comers. Plus, the stairs (about 120 of them) get crowded; especially on weekends.

This trail is very similar to the others that connect the Faulty with the South Crest. It is a climb the whole way up, with close to no flat spots. Most of the hiking is done in a rocky riverbed marked by cairns. If you're aiming to get from the Faulty to the South Crest or vice-versa just use the most convenient one as none of the trails, including this one, stand out,

A great, beautiful hike that I have done several times. About halfway up you have an option to take a steeper or easier ascent. I have always taken the steeper, which is not that bad though I wouldn't recommend it if this is your first time hiking or have weak knees. The trail climbs up to a wonderful, expansive view. Bring lunch (and maybe a beer) for the top. As with most mountain trails, the descent is a breeze.

A beautiful hike that I would highly recommend, though perhaps not for anyone with a fear of heights or issues with vertigo. The hike starts out easy enough, though there is little to no shade so be prepared with plenty of water, as it's extremely hot in the summertime. You'll then climb and make your way up, which includes a tricky section of boulders. You wouldn't want to do this if there is rain, as I imagine it would be way too slippery. From there the trail is poorly marked so you have to watch closely for the markers. The view from the top is stunning, one of the most amazing views I experienced while hiking in Santa Fe.

Nice, easy hike. I did this alone and followed the outline in the Sierra Club book, which is a great book detailing all the major Santa Fe/surrounding area hikes. Nice waterfalls along the way and fun to explore off the path without getting lost.
