Devil's Stairsteps - Huerfano County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: A good side trip is from La Veta to the towering monumental spine of rock known as the Devil's Stairsteps. This formation extends for miles and the view is worth the trip. Golden Eagles, Prairie Falcons, and other raptors often perch and soar along the formation. It's also a reliable place to view White-throated Swifts. CO 12 is a narrow winding road, so please find safe places to park and walk while viewing the Stairsteps.

Habitat: Cliff Face
Directions: Continue south and west thru La Veta on CO 12 about 6-7 miles to the Stairsteps.
