The Number One hike in the Flat Tops Wilderness area is the Devils Causeway, a 6 mile out-and-back hike to a narrow 4-foot wide 50-foot long land bridge.
Hike up the switchbacks, tiptoe or crawl across the Causeway, get some selfies, crawl back across then descend back to the trailhead.
Or you can add in a loop to spend more time in the beautiful backcountry and make it a 11 mile loop instead of just seeing the quick tourist hit. Volcanic cliffs, alpine tundra, beautiful lakes – it’s a shame that most people do the Causeway and then turn back!

If you’re squeamish about heights, this is where you poop yourself.
After you clear the Causeway, the high alpine meadows of the Flat Tops stretch out to the horizon.
Flat and Flat
Flat Tops stretch out in every direction.
Coming down the Bear River is lush greenery just calling for moose.
Just the right sunlight angle and a polarizing lens, and Stillwater Reservoir lights up.
