Just finished this trail. First time Mountain Biking, went with friend. It absolutely broke me off. Definitely several spots with a 'pucker factor'. Very fun. Need to get into shape and run it again and again!

My husband and I did this hike on our honeymoon. He is not a big hiker and did not find this trail difficult. It is an easy hike, but hot at midday as there is little shade on the trail. Wish we had more time to hike more in this area. Such a beautiful area!

Mild. Good family hike with terrain from wildflowers, juniper to almost barren. It may only be .7 miles but you can make it a bit longer. Explore and enjoy but bring a lot of water for you and your 4- legged friend.

This site is enroute to the north entry into the Colorado National Monument. It is a former archaeological dig. Simple loop. I would not do again, just to minor and little to offer.

Great hike for kids, with good interp panels that tell you about the dinosaurs and geology of the area.

I was able to take this trail with arthritic knees. And I felt like I kept my heart rate up too! Hard to find a trail like this. Beautiful views as well!

this is hands down one of my favorite places. the view is jaw dropping, walks and climbs vary in challenge. you can pack light or heavy. go prepared bring plenty water and more food than you need. you may decide to stay longer than expected because it's just to nice too leave.

Come here every year and stay in Fruita. Perfect spot to stay and explore the monument or arches and canyonlands. Definitely worth checking out

This is a very fun trail with excellent views. Because this trail is rated as intermediate, I was caught off guard by the several hike-a-bike sections. But the rideable parts definitely live up to the intermediate rating.

Took my 8 and 9 year old boys along with me today to tackle this trail and I was amazed at how well they did, charging through the 6+ miles of rolling terrain. This trail provides little to no shade if you traverse in mid-day so be weary if you have little ones or are susceptible to heat if you plan to knock out in the summer temps. Cabin is a cool little remnant of roughing it and marks the turn around point of the trailhead approximately a little more than half way. Lots of scenery to look at, wildlife included lizards and a few birds. Might be much for non-seasoned hikers (kids) but makes for a great 1/2 day hike.

The trail head is at a parking lot with a restroom. The main trail starts out as a gravel path. It is pretty heavily used, but the main trail breaks into many loops. I am just introducing my girlfriend to hiking so we took the small D4 loop. It was really easy with not much elevation change. There were some pretty cool cliffs to see, and we ran into several people on horseback. It is close to GJ, and a great place for some entry level hiking. There seems to be many other trails with varying degrees of difficulty, so we will be back.

Nice loop hike in the McInnis Canyons National Conservation Area. Great sandstone formations, you'll pass an old cabin (be sure to go inside and sign the register).

Long trail, up over the top with some very nice panoramic views. Didn't see another soul on the whole hike but did see lots of evidence of horses using the trail. Fairly easy hiking at that altitude (below 7,000 feet) if you're acclimated to higher. All in all, a nice hike if you're in the park and want to get out for a long stroll.
