Harpers Corner Trail is a 2.3 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Dinosaur, Colorado that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
Directions from Dinosaur: Take Hwy. 40 East 2 miles from Dinosaur and turn north on Harper's Corner Rd at the monument headquarters. The trailhead is located at the end of the road.
Great hike, even in the heat. Lots of raptors to see (no, not the dinosaurs ;-) and plenty of breathtaking vistas. Buggy as all get-out, so bring insect repellent or risk inhaling mosquitos!
Canyons doesn't get as much traffic as the Quarry, so picturesque solitude may be yours if you're lucky.
The trail is easy and the reward at the end is spectacular! Take the time!
Great views of the Yampa and Green River Confluence.
