Overview

Located just west of De Beque, in the desert mountains of western Colorado, Monument Rocks is a trail that will surprise you with beauty, interesting rock formations, open camp views, jaw-dropping cliffs, and even the sights and sounds of wild horses. Close to Grand Junction, this off-road trail is easy enough to be completed by just about any SUV, and offers endless recreational opportunities as it snakes its way through the Little Bookcliffs Wild Horse Area; One of only three such ranges in the United States. Bring the family, bring a lunch, and bring the binoculars as you scout the horizon for the plethora of diverse colored horses roaming the area.
