The Place In Colorado That Sounds Terrifying But You’ll Actually Love

Don’t you just love how Colorado is home to some of the most magnificently named attractions? Whether it’s the Garden of the Gods, Royal Gorge, or Bishop Castle, there are plenty of these larger-than-life sounding locations to go around! Here is another uniquely-named attraction that you may not be familiar with: the Devil’s Causeway. Now, we know this sounds pretty morbid and terrifying, but we are betting that you will fall in love with it at first sight:

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

As you can see, the Devil’s Causeway is a bit wicked in its own way, but if you are an experienced hiker, this grimly-named landmark is truly heaven-on-earth. Located south of Steamboat Springs, the Devil’s Causeway is a jagged and narrow peak that stands at an elevation of nearly 12,000 feet and is recommended for only the most skilled of hiker, as some spots are a mere four-feet-wide. In addition to its iconic rocky ridge, the six-mile hike around the Devil’s Causeway also features stunning views of the lush valleys below and a killer photo-op (with built-in bragging rights).

The Devil’s Causeway is located within the jaw-dropping Flat Tops Wilderness and can be accessed via the Stillwater Reservoir Trailhead or Ripple Creek Pass Trailhead. For more information and in-depth directions, please check out this thorough guide on Summit Post.
