  • We chose to hike the Devils Causeway loop in reverse, meaning we ended at Devils Causeway and 3 mile hike to the lot. It is 7.3 miles to the Causeway if you start by going past Mosquito Lake. Only do ...  more »
  • I love this hike. It is a good work out, but very do-able for a moderate hiker. The landscape changes several times throughout with wildflower meadows, rocky cliffs, lake views and of course the cause...  more »
  • My favorite hike—I live 3 hours away but hike it every decade. It kicks my *SS every time—that’s why I LOVE it. And you will too — that is, if you can actually conquer it.  more »

  • Great hike, though be prepared for steep terrain and somewhat busy weekends. The lower part of the hike is in the beautiful forest with wildflowers blooming in the summer. The ridge itself is in a really nice place whether or not you decide to cross it, it offers great views and when crossing feels safer than you would think despite the large drop offs on either side.
  • We got there and I assumed (my fault) that there would be well marked trails pointing the way to the Devil's Causeway. I was wrong we got there and had several numbered trails and headed down the wrong way. We corrected our route after an hour of hiking. Then made it to the causeway in 2 1/2 hours. The snow covered the trail several time on the way up the ridge and right after the causeway as we continued on the loop. However, after seeing the trail markers for most of the ridge trail, they stopped when it seemed like we had to descend down the ridge. We tried to find the trail down but instead we were forced to makeshift a path down across snow, through willows, scrabbling down rocks and finally marching through the marsh lands until we reconnected with the trail right before we came by the reservoir. This hike was beautiful and the devil's causeway was fun, but I'm not sure it was worth the stress and pain of being lost.
  • Must see! So beautiful
  • The hike is great! Pics of the causeway don't compare to seeing it in person.
  • Once across you may not want to go back. Its a thrill of a lifetime.
