Monument Canyon Trail In Colorado National Monument
Photos of My Loop Hike To Independence Monument; Returned Via The Wedding Canyon Trail
A hike into the heart of Colorado National Monument ... With the trailhead in the Redlands (off of Broadway), the Monument Canyon Trail is an excellent choice for
Grand Junction hikers. The trail
travels 2.5 miles to the base of Independence Monument, and continues for miles to the upper Monument Canyon Trailhead at Rim Rock Drive.
On this hike, I did the standard Monument Canyon Trail route from Broadway, and then returned via Wedding Canyon, making it a five-mile loop.
Nearly everywhere, red rock scenery like this abounds in Monument Canyon.
