Larimer County has several county parks in areas of geological interest, including Carter Lake, Eagle’s Nest, and Devil’s Backbone. Geology walks are led at these areas on occasion, and group or student tours may be arranged. The fascinating and spookily realistic Devils Backbone, a spine of vertically dipping Dakota Sandstone west of Loveland, may be toured using a self-guiding brochure that describes the local geology and the related cultural history.
