We took the trail counterclockwise. Going down the rough canyon offers gorgeous views. You’ll have to climb over several boulders with quite some drops! Don’t expect your usual trail. We had our dogs, Border Terrier and Belgium Malinous. They did ok for the most part....More

The full Tabeguache trail covers 142 miles. We only visited the section that passes through the Lunch Loops mountain biking area. I highly recommend the Lunch Loops trails for all ages and abilities. There is everything from a pump track with varying sized jumps to...More

My favorite place to grab a quick or long hike. Keep alert for mountIn bikers on the fly. There is staging area for parking on Monument Road on the way to the Colorado National Monument- a must see drive. There are many connecting trails for...More

A popular trail. Bring water. Fairly easy hiking and mountain biking. Don't take a dirt bike. At the junction of Hwy 141, you need to carry your bike a short way.

pronounced "tab a watch". This trail, like others in the nearby Colorado Monument, has fascinating views of many rock layers and a variety of patterns of erosion. Every turn in the trail was a new discovery.

The Lunch Loop, part of the Tabeguache, is the only part I can comment on, as I'm just now exploring it. Yes, it is dog friendly. Dogs do have to mind, and you must pick up after it.
