The Colorado National Monument
Tour the Colorado National Monument, a 20,000-Acre landscape of towering rock spires and majestic canyons offering spectacular views of the Grand Valley. Visitors can get a glimpse of its splendor by taking the 23-mile Rim Rock Drive that climbs 2,000 feet above the Grand Valley of the Colorado River. Along the route, several roadside overlooks provide opportunities to stop and savor the sights.
A spectacular view of Colorado's Grand Valley may be enjoyed from the top of Serpent's Trail, a vigorous hike with more than 50 switchbacks. The more gently sloping Otto's Trail leads to an overlook for a panoramic view of a population of monoliths. For more adventurous hikers, the Monument offers backcountry routes from 4 to 8.5 miles in length.
Adjacent to the Colorado National Monument are Black Ridge Canyons Wilderness and McInnis Canyons National Conservation Area. These remote settings offer natural arches and unusual Colorado landscapes for hikers, mountain bikers and backcountry explorers.
Endless Forests and More than 300 Lakes
Rising 6,000 feet above the Grand Valley, Colorado's Grand Mesa is an outdoor recreation paradise that offers a network of more than 700 miles of hiking, biking, skiing, and snowmobiling trails. Also, more than 300 lakes swarming with trout, and a lush forest habitat for porcupines, coyotes, red fox, elk, and deer display the beauty. The 63-mile Grand Mesa National Scenic & Historic Byway is a national treasure that can be reached just to the east of Grand Junction, Colorado.
