Top Hikes: ‘Colorado National Monument’

Colorado National Monument is home for cool hikes and amazing views. It’s located in western Colorado near the town of Grand Junction. Join a friend and I as we hike to Independence Rock. Afterwards we’ll take in the rim overlooks that give spectacular views into the canyon. Visited on September 30, 2020.

Colorado National Monument is a National Park Service unit near the city of Grand Junction, Colorado. Sheer-walled canyons cut deep into sandstone and granite–gneiss–schist rock formations. This is an area of desert land high on the Colorado Plateau, with pinyon and juniper forests on the plateau.
