Colorado – Devil’s Backbone

Day two of my trip in Colorado we hiked Devil’s Backbone which is just west west of Loveland, Colorado. The trails were breathtaking to say the least. The 12 mile trail system can be used for hiking, running, biking, or horseback riding.

The highlight of this trail is the rock formations that they call Devil’s Backbone. The rigid rocks extend for what seems like miles.

There are two lookouts that give you a landscape view of the peaks of the northern front range. Although, we didn’t pack a lunch – it would have been the perfect place to have one.

The hike was easy enough to traverse with proper shoes. I had borrowed my friend’s Merrell hiking sneakers, seen in the picture above. I had no problems climbing on rocks, the grips on the soles worked on every surface I climbed on. You can find a similar pair below:

My favorite part was the shale (or similar type rock) sticking out of the trails horizontally.

I love the outdoors and if I actually lived here, this would be one of my favorite spots!
