This trail is about three miles there and back. While the heat was a challenge, the trail itself wasn't too bad. Our daughters were 7 and 9, did fine. The vistas are grand and worth it. A good family adventure.

Drive to the very end of Harper's Corner Road to reach the trail head for this hike. There are several overlooks along the way that provide beautiful views of the canyons. As it was early morning when we started the drive we found ourselves occasionally sharing the road with deer that have a tendency to suddenly pop out of nowhere.... More

Our family only had time to do one hike in Dinosaur National Monument and this turned out to be the perfect one. This hike is long enough to feel like a hike, and even while it is around 3 miles round trip, the views are perhaps the best in the park. The trail follows a peninsula that juts out to... More

Incredible views make this up and down trail worth every minute. Some of the trail us narrow and close to the edge but I was never frightened for my kids walking ahead of us. This is THE trail to hike in Dinosaur National Monument.

We loved this walk. We did it with our two small girls (4 and 6 years old) so it was quite a long walk for them. There is only one part of the walk where you need to be quite cautious of the edge, as there is a fence at the end of the walk so kids can look around... More

First Dinosaur is a quiet park, far from the crowd. From Harper's corner one can get some wonderful views on the Green River. The path leading there is easy and nice.

This is by far the most rewarding walk in Dinosaur NM. It is fairly flat as you go along a ridge up to the edge of the cliff that overlooks the Green River. From there you have amazing views of the river to the west, the meanders to the right with Steamboat Rock and Echo Park and a view ahead... More

An easy 2 mile round trip walk at the end of a scenic drive. Takes you out the spine of a ridge to a narrow point 2300 ft. above the rivers. Tremendous views up and down stream and of Echo Park. Well worth the effort.

Probably pretty tough in hot weather. But just 2 miles round trip with little elevation gain. Unbelievable views.

This is an easy 1 mile out and 1 mile back trail from the end of the 30 mile Harper's Corner Auto Tour at the Dinosaur side of Dinosaur National Monument. The views along the trail and at at the end are superb, well worth the little effort it takes to get to them. The trail follows a ridge with... More
