One of the best views around at the end of the trail. Well worth the short hike. Takes about 20-30 minutes. Well maintained trail. Not too steep of elevation change. Suggest bringing binoculars and camera!

Drove up a nice drive no signage but the hike was easy with spectacular views. There were pit toilets at the trail head. You get views of both the green and the yampa

This moderate trail takes you out just over a mile to the edge of the mesa (and then back the same mile). About halfway along the trail you start to get beautiful views down to the surrounding rivers and canyons. At the end you are...More

The day was cold. There was a lot of ground fog. There was no view from the parking lot. We thought about leaving. Glad we didn't. After we started on the trail, the fog lifted to one of the most amazing sights I've seen. The...More

Even though this is part of Dinosaur National Monument you have to go to a different entrance than the one with the bones. It's worth the drive to see this rugged country. We saw a pronghorn herd right next to the road. There are a...More

This is a one mile out and back trail. It goes from a paved parking lot to the end of a precipice. Great views of the Green and Yampa river canyon's. Very easy trail. Could use water in summer. It is hot and dry here.

I loved everything about this park. This trail in particular was really great. Though it is listed as 1 mile, my GPS showed it to be 1.3 to the end of the trail itself, before returning back. The views are absolutely spectacular throughout. The trail...More

The Yampa River was once a wiggling, wriggling stream that meandered across the landscape which is now part of Dinosaur National Monument in northwestern Colorado. With uplifting and mountain building during the Laramide Orogeny around 70-80 mya (near the end of the Age of Dinosaurs),...More

This is a short and easy out and back trail that I took my 3 young boys on. There was an iffy section towards the end where the trail was literally at a cliff edge so it was a definite hand hold situation, but the...More

Not a very difficult hike about 1.5 miles out and then back. The vista at the end is simply stunning. If you visit this park, you must do this hike!
