The magnificent Colorado National Monument was esablished in 1911 to preserve one of the grand landscapes of the American West. The Rim Rock Drive offers 23 miles of breathtaking views. The road climbs from the Grand Valley of the Colorado River to the park’s high country, then winds along the plateau rim. The drive is ideal for bicycling as well as motor tours. A guidebook is available at the visitor center. You can park at several roadside overlooks along the way and enjoy panoramas of the park’s great rock sculptures, canyons and distant valleys and mountains. There are also a variety of picnic areas. Hiking and rock climbing are also popular in the area.
