Devils Head is a prominent peak in the Rampart Range. It is easily reached from Sedalia on State Highway 85 via U.S. Highway 67 (Jarre Canyon Road) and Rampart Range road; the distance from Sedalia is 21.5 mi. It can also be reached from Colorado Springs by way of U.S. Highway 24 to Woodland Park, then along Rampart Range Road. This locality has at times been under claim by local mineral clubs.

In 1880s a pocket 50 feet long, 4 to 15 feet wide and 4 feet thick produced many crystals of topaz, microcline, cassiterite and fluorite.

2017 Update: Log Jumper trail head digs have been claimed. The claims are in popular dig sites that are within ½ mile of Rampart Range Road, on the west side starting from the trail head post. Please note that these digs are also no longer open to the public and there are now mining hazards in the area.
