Questions & answers

Q:
Is the trail ok for strollers? I know the stairs are not but how Bout up to the stairs?
A:
Just finished the hike today - definitely not stroller friendly. Lots of steep switchbacks (not very flat) with rocks and other objects to step over.
Q:
Is the trail open now (November 4 - 6th 2016?) Just want to make sure it's not closed for the season before I make the trip.
A:
The trail was open last week and I believe will stay open until Rampart Range closes Dec 1, but I don't think the fire tower at the top is open after mid September.

From Castle Rock you need to get on South Rampart Range Road, so depending on where you live, there are a couple ways you can access Rampart Range Road. I take Perry Park Road (105) to Jackson Creek Road. I follow Jackson Creek Road. Jackson Creek Road turns into road 38 then into road 27. After it turns into road 27 you hang a right onto road 507. 507 will take you straight to South Rampart Range Road. Turn left (south) onto S Rampart Range Road, drive for a bit and you will see a sign for the parking lot of Devil's Head Trail. It will be at a "Y" in the road and you will go to the left to get to the parking lot. You can also go straight to Rampart Range Road from off of highway 67. If you get on Google Earth you can see which way would be shortest for you. Happy Hiking!!

Q:
What is the weather like there today? Is there a lot of snow?
A:
There probably is enough snow that you would have to have chains on your tires just to get there.
