Devils Nose and Back Hike is a 5km, grade 3 Return hike located in Para Wirra Recreation Park South Australia. The hike should take approximately 2hrs to complete.
Enjoy this hike out along a long ridge to Devils Nose Lookout, with views along the ridge and lookout. Begin this hike from the car park and trailhead on Para Wirra Drive (the main entrance road). The carpark and trailhead is the first car park from the main entrance off Humbug Scrub Road.
The walk starts off along an easy fire track, before continuing along a walking trail. Along the walking trail there are some small rocky sections.

Extend the hike from a return 5.0km to a 8.5km circuit hike with the Devils Nose Hike via Lizard Rock and Hissey Trails. There are superb views from the rocks at Lizard Rock into Wild Dog Creek. Descend into Wild Dog Creek at the northern end of this hike, and glimpse views of Devils Nose from below as you gradually contour around on the ascent to the lookout. The Hissey Trail walks around the main Lake.
