Temporary Closure: Devil’s Head Lookout Tower

Volunteers will join skilled instructors from Colorado Preservation, Inc. to restore the deteriorated historic lookout cabin located on Devil’s Head Mountain of the Pike National Forest. The popular Devil’s Head Lookout Tower will be temporarily closed to visitors August 13 - September 6, 2013 due to construction work. Visitors will be able to hike Devils Head Lookout Trail and the stairs leading to the Tower. However, temporary closures may be necessary for safety reasons while materials are transported in and out of the work site.

In addition, the lookout cabin may be open to the public August 31 - September 2 during the Labor Day Holiday. This partnership between Historicorps and the US Forest Service aims to preserve this nationally significant historic site. This project was funded, in part, by a Colorado State Historical Fund Grant from History Colorado and the Colorado Historical Society.
