Harleys Dome is a 4-mile moderate 4x4 trail within the McInnis Canyons National Conservation Area along I-70. The trail's highlight has to be that it crosses into Utah, near the I-70 Utah Stateline sign. The trail has a couple of challenges that require 4x4 and high clearance. You must drop down a wash embankment and climb the other side. Avoid the trail in wet conditions. The mud will be impassable.

The area also offers mountain biking at Mack Ridge/Kokopelli and off-highway vehicle trails in Rabbit Valley. The Trail Through Time, adjacent to an active dinosaur quarry, provides visitors a chance to learn about fossils and paleontological finds in the area. Find outstanding hiking and horseback riding at Devil's Canyon and Pollock Bench trailheads off Kingsview Road outside Fruita. The area is home to mountain lions, desert bighorn sheep, elk, deer, eagles, and collared lizards.

Camping is not permitted along this route. Free primitive camping can be found on Crow Ridge trail at High North Campground.
