DescriptionThis rock is accessed from The Crags day use parking, which is now on the road to the campground on the right. A trail takes you up steep switchbacks and around and above the campground, which you can see below and right. You then come to a split with the right hand fork going across a foot bridge and up to the summit of Pike's Peak eventually. Take the left fork and stay in the drainage. Within about a mile the pinnacle will become very visible on your right.
Getting ThereFrom US Highway 24 out of Colorado Springs, drive past Woodland Park to Divide and take a left on CO 67 to Cripple Creek. Just past the entrance to Mueller State Park, look for a brown NP sign on the left that says "Crags TH." Turn down this dirt road and take a right at the Mennonite camp and drive a mile or so further. Turn into the Crags Day Use Parking on the right. Parking is free for day use. The Crags Campground is a fee use area. You can hike up the spur to join the original trail or hike the road there through the campground, which is less steep.
Per Keith B. Ives: the free parking for the trail head is at the "Crags Devils Playground Trailhead".
