Devil’s Backbone Loops
Hike among hogbacks by the distinctive Devil’s Backbone rock formation and experience geology firsthand. The area’s human history is explained on several interpretive signs and in a trail guide. Red-tailed hawks, ravens, swallows, and a great-horned owl nest in the niches of the Backbone formation. The views are great, too! From prairie to rock formations to a lush little gully, the trail constantly changes. With three possible loops, you can find a short or long hike to suit your fancy.
