Fun loop with side roads to explore.

A fun loop with several side roads to explore. Trail is open to motorized traffic June 15 through Nov. 15. Gate is locked the rest of the year. Broad views from top of mountain at Wpt. 04. Parking along Highway 103 near start of trail. Before or after you drive this trail, consider a trip to Echo Lake and Mt. Evans, just another 2.5 miles past the trailhead on Hwy. 103.


Trail Ratings Defined

Much of this trail is easy; however, one steep, rocky spot after Waypoint 05 is borderline difficult. (This section may be closed on future MVUMs. If closed, continue east to Waypoint 04, turn left and go out the way you came in.) Side trip on 246.1B is very steep and narrow at the end.

Ben Clark says

I drove Devil's Canyon, Sept. 7, 2015, in my stock Jeep Cherokee. Tougher than expected. Needed 4WD low several times to get past some nasty obstacles in the loop section. I'm thinking that heavy usage and the wet summer has made this trail a bad boy. It was plenty of adventure for my wife and me and good test drive for the new Trailhawk. The markers in the book were spot on and very useful.
