Posted on July 21, 2021 2021DC Outdoors


The Pike-San Isabel National Forests & Cimarron and Comanche National Grasslands South Platte Ranger District will close the Devils Head Recreation area for construction to begin this week.

The closure area includes the Devils Head trailhead, picnic area, fire lookout tower, the end of National Forest Service Road 300.0 and 300.PA and the Zinn Trail (NFST 615) and Devils Head Trail (NFST 611). The order will remain in effect until December 1, 2021 or until rescinded, whichever comes first.

“We are working to upgrade the utilities which is paramount to the continued operation of this very popular recreation area,” said District Ranger Brian Banks. “We look forward to seeing everyone next season.”

The closure prohibits going into or being upon the restricted area, being on the restricted roads and being on the restricted trails.
