Reviews

Although I did not take the out-and-back to Little Devils Tower, I did do the main loop. This trail would be my recommendation if you plan to do Black Elk Peak. Gives a little more scenery than an out-an-back and was not rigorous. It also brings you very close to the Cathedral Spires which are a sight to see!
