Live in Fruita just across the river and like to go on this trail for a quick workout and get away. Nice views at the top

It was fairly easy. It was great for my 6 and 10 year old they both enjoyed it very much! Pretty views.

An easy hike that we did with the kids (6 and 2.5) yesterday. It was perfect to burn off wiggles and learn something interesting too!

Beautiful views all along the trail!

Anti climactic. Just a dusty hill where they excavated some dinosaur bones in the early 1900's. I would not do again. I guess it's fine if you just want to get out of the car to stretch your legs.

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.
