Gorgeous views. If following this trail you will want high clearance going up. 33 in tires on Xterra was good enough with no lift. Ran into a couple shorter vehicles backing down the switchbacks to turn around.

A bit off the trail is a wall that is supposed to have Ute petroglyphs and has a lot of graffiti :(. One or two looked to be authentic but most was much newer.

Didn’t see any signs to quarry along this trail and didn’t take the time to explore much. Nice drive and will go back later with more exploration time.

This is a good place to take the four wheelers to the trail head then hike the Dinosaur loop. The Dinosaur Quary is not in very good shape. Signs have been removed or are on the ground. The veiws from there are very beautiful!!!!
