Spectacular views of the Green River, Echo Park, and Yampa Bench. We watched a group of rafters make their way down the Green.

Great easy hike with outstanding views of the combined Green River to the west and Echo Park to the east. Some shade.

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.
