Colorado National Monument

The Colorado National Monument embodies the majesty of the American West. Panoramic views of towering red rock structures are just one reason why the park is a favorite among travelers in search of Colorado’s best camping, hiking, rafting and mountain biking. Trails in the park range in length from a quarter mile to more than 14 miles, offering fun for hikers and bikers of all skill levels. For those who simply want to enjoy the sights, the scenic Rim Rock Drive stretches 23 miles through the park, offering awe-inspiring views along the way. Stop by for the day to experience the park's scenery or explore the park for several days on a camping trip.

The park and Rim Rock Drive are easily accessible from the nearby towns Grand Junction and Fruita. The price of admission is $10 for vehicles and $5 for motorcycles or bicycles. Admission is good for up to seven days from the date of purchase. There are also several fee free days scheduled throughout the year. For live views of the Monument, check out the National Park Service's webcam
