Colorado National Monument, Fruita Reviews
Scenery is absolutely beautiful. I like it better than Grand Canyon. There are so many switchbacks. An awesome place to hike and bicycle. Temperatures are awesome. I can breathe with no problem. Grand Junction is really a neat place to visit!
Very pretty. Even coming here after seeing the amazing arches and Canyonlands, this was a pleasant surprise. Cool rock towers and other formations to feast the eye. Beautiful combination between red Rock and green trees, bushes and grass. Campsites are nice here and not too busy! I would start here (if you're doing a road trip from Colorado) and move down to miss to see arches and the rest. Just to warm up;)
I am kicking myself for not visiting sooner. I have driven this I-70 stretch over 100 times and never knew that this park ran parallel with the highway. If you are driving this stretch anyway, the entrance to each end of the park is only 10 minutes off the highway in Grand junction and Fruita. You might add an hour to your trip but the views are unforgettable. The kids loved driving through the sandstone tunnels carved into the mountain and the cliffs and canyons are just breathtaking. This is a lot like driving through Zion National Park but you get to see the vistas looking down instead of up. You get tons of awesome views from the cast without having to hike and there are tons of pull offs for pictures. I think we will start hitting this park every time we pass through Grand Junction on I-70 If you found this review helpful, please click "Like" below.
Definitely worth the trip. One and my friends and I rented a car just to visit this beautiful place and let me just say, it was worth every penny. It’s extremely accessible, has a ton of beautiful scenery, and great hiking spots. Unlike most parks, there’s a lot of stops you can make, I was actually impressed with how big it was as far as being super accessible by car. I’m not a big hiker, and it was relieving to find out that there was so many easy spots to venture out. Gift shop is nice, has a lot of interesting history and their employees were very kind. Definitely check it out if you’re in the area, hands down one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to!
Very cool small national park! Just ten minutes from the Fruita exit. The road climbs steep and winds up onto the plateau on the south side of the Colorado river. The road follows the rim of the plateau about 20 miles with many look-out locations and short hikes out to other lookouts and interesting areas. Very cool sandstone towers and features. The trails, picnic area, parking lots and camping areas all seemed well kept. Low traffic for a national park. Not as much to see as other parks but would make a fun day and a half stay.
