As I don't want my secret spot to suddenly be as popular as Vail or Aspen. I love this part of Colorado, mosquitoes and all. The hike is lovely and offers unparalleled vistas. It is a tougher hike but there are tougher hikes right in Boulder.

Beautiful views for an afternoon adventure if staying in Grand Junction. Take a little drive through Grand Mesa, we went on national parks weekend so it was free.

We visited the first week of October. The leaves were in full change, there were very few other tourists to compete with, and the weather was gorgeous. Couldn't have asked for better day.

This park is far less traveled than some of the other nearby national parks in UT, so it's a great chance to experience nature in solitude. Highly recommend the Crag Crest Trail.
