The Heart of the World Colorado National Monument preserves one of the grand landscapes of the American West. But this treasure is much more than a monument. Towering monoliths exist within a vast plateau and canyon panorama. You can experience sheer-walled, red rock canyons along the twists and turns of Rim Rock Drive, where you may spy bighorn sheep and soaring eagles.

Nice trail, went in late June water wasn't running. Not a lot of shade recommend going early in the morning. Great for all kids it's easy, trail is kinda over grown

Lots of horse droppings. It's also sandy until you get to the canyon.

Good for kids, short hike.

Nice workout!! (Trail is super wide it used to be the old road) lots of places to stop and look at the views. It's not very long and doesn't have any shade. the best time to go is pretty early in the morning, I wouldn't go out during the day it gets way too hot! Great for kids of all ages no dogs unfortunately.

Pretty easy hike, some steep up hills but is definitely worth it the view is amazing! Trail is kind of hard to navigate towards the top (as long as you are going up it's the right direction) I find the best time to go is in the morning between 8-10 you'll stay cool in the shade most of the time. Great for kids of all ages but no dogs unfortunately.

Went hiking with my husband and 9 month old in a carrier. This is a great trail for anyone looking to ease into an active life.

Great views of the canyons and red buttes as you walk through them! We enjoyed seeing so much of the landscape on this hike. And even saw mountain lion tracks!
