Be sure to bring plenty of water for this hike. Although it is only 1.4 miles to the lookout the trail is very steep gaining 1,000' in elevation. Once you reach the lookout you may decide to continue hiking on Zinn Trail, which will make the round-trip distance 3.75 miles. Mountain Bikes and horses are permitted on this route but not encouraged. The high volume of foot traffic seen on this trail makes horses and mountain bikes difficult to maneuver.
Directions from Sedalia: Devils Head Lookout Trail can be reached by traveling approximately ten miles west of Sedalia on Highway 67 to the Rampart Range Road. Turn left (south) on the Rampart Range Road for approximately eight and one-half miles to the trailhead.
