Devils Kitchen  Sucess!

Several times, especially between May 2001 and October 2004 when we lived in Fruita.

Explore!  Sucess!

Wonderful hike, and it doesn't take much exploring to find even more awesome climbs and scrambles. Stay out of the lemon-squeezers in the late afternoon/evening...all the creepy crawlies come out!

Original Name Not-So Evil:  Sucess!

Monument founder John Otto originally named this place "King Apple's Castle" (something like that). Many starry-eyed white settlers spread the idea that the "Garden of Eden was awaiting discovery out west. This western-Eden notion combined with Otto's nearby "Serpent's Trail" (once called the Crookedest road in the world) led to some clever hikers to call the red-ring of towers the Devil's Kitchen... the name stuck. I prefer the original name. I don't feel spooky at this sheltered place... On it's upper towers, I have been scarred for sure.
There is excellent-superb-amazing-stellar scrambling next to, under, on-top-of the kitchen, and especially on the layered cliffs and cracks (lemon-squeezers!) above.

Nice destination  Sucess!

Makes for a great experience....the short distance and relatively easy path make for a great destination for those who might otherwise not enjoy the long hauls involved with hiking.
