Description

This trail goes on for at least 8 miles, and eventually connects up with several other trails in the area, but you only have to hike a mile or two to reach the Devil's Backbone. The Backbone is a line of rocks sticking out of the ground that looks like a bony spine. You've got to see this in person!
Trail length: 8 miles

    The beauty of this trail doesn't show until you get a little ways into it. But once you're there, it will bring tears to he eyes. Awesome hike for the dog and for after a long day at work.

    This trail is great. Took my 8 year old here and we hiked for about 2 hours and had lunch in a spot under some trees. The backbone is so cool.

    Really good hike. Different levels of difficulty at different spots. Great for people of all ages. Only problem is it can get a little hot because there is no tree coverage
