My review is specifically about something you can do only twice a year, on the Spring & Fall equinox. Crack Cave is a 25-mile dirt road drive from Springfield, CO to Picture Canyon followed by a 1.5 mile hike to get to the location where...More

Don't bypass this beautiful place. It is well worth the drive off the main drive. It is a real step back in time when Indians wintered. It also is a stopping point for pioneers on their way to California and from those on the Sante...More

You really kind of need to go out with a guide but lots of little hidden nooks and crannie in the canyonlands. Old Indian drawings on cavewalls, old coppermine and spring. On Equinox days there is a cave that the sun shines through directly on...More

This canyon is easily accessible by car. Restroom and picnic facilities are available. Rock art (petroglyphs and pictographs) are abundant, although many have been defaced. Crack Cave is open only on Equinox weekends, but is visable through a gate. Watch for snakes in summer! Take...More
