Devil's Head is a rugged ridge midway between Pike's Peak and Mt. Evans in Colorado's Front Range. The 14- by 14-ft. ground house is reached via a National Recreation Trail. The dwelling also is used as a base for interpretive activities. The lookout is still manned by personnel from the South Platte District of the Pike National Forest.
