Devil's Backbone- Loveland

Neko's Favorite Reasons to Love this Hike:

  1. Incredible rock formations are the highlight of this open space. Hike up to the keyhole to get a great view of Loveland.

  2. Trails for 17 miles, depending on your ability. Can connect to Horsetooth Trails and Rimrock Open Space. We hiked the Wildloop Trail to the keyhole (about 2.1 miles round trip) and the Morrisom loop (.4 miles).

  3. Birdwatching and wild life viewing abounds. Bring your binoculars!
