Diversion Hike to Imperial Rock; D5 Trail With Return on D6 Trail; Beautiful Orange Rock Scenery
A hiker's paradise ... South of Fruita, Colorado,
the trail system at the Devils Canyon Trailhead is elaborate. Trails lead into Kodells Canyon, Devils Canyon and Flume Canyon. Others
meander among gorgeous orange rock scenery with remarkable rock formations.
No doubt, locals take good advantage of the hiking opportunities in this area outside
of Colorado National Monument.
On this particular page, I document my hike on the D5 trail.

My trail map. I started in the top right, and went counterclockwise on the D5 Trail. I made a diversion
toward Imperial Rock (O = Duck Rock, + = Imperial Rock), then finished on D5 and returned via the D6 and D1 trails.
