Rock art, fall color, wildflowers, wadeable creek, tufa cliffs, hoodoos If you ignore the noise from Interstate 70 (which runs smack down the middle of this loop) and turn your back to the concrete double lanes, you will find this loop quite pretty. The historic features are also not to be missed, especially the "100 Hands Cave", the "Blanket Pictograph", and the "Sheep Pen" with it's gigantic magnifying glass that allows you to see a tiny herd running atop a crack in the cave wall. In season you will enjoy wildflowers and autumn colors set against a range whose summits include the famous Big Rock Candy Mountain. You may wade in the creek, but bring your own water. The south side of the loop is infested by range cattle: watch every step. Parts of the northern loop are hard to trace and the cutoff to Skinner Canyon overgrown. You can halve this hike by using the turnabout. Due to funding cuts, this park is in desperate need of volunteer trail reconstruction. Contact the museum for more information.
