If visiting Dinosaur National Monument, you have to take the short drive into Colorado to take Harpers Corner Scenic Drive. You have one scenic overlook after another. Be sure to stop at all of the pull offs and take in the incredible scenery. The return...More

While I am glad we experienced this part of the Monument, there were other places I enjoyed more. The paved road has some scenic overlooks and a short hike at the end, but the real gem of the park in the Dinosaur area is the...More

It's hard to describe what you see here and pictures do not and will not do it justice. This is one of those things you just need to see for yourselves.

This 31-mile (one way) scenic drive has numerous overlooks some of which are vast and stunning. Plan at least a half a day (or more if you stop often to view the scenery). If the sun is right you can get some great landscape photos.

If you have a high clearance vehicle and the road is dry, then definitely drive down this road. There's an old ranch, petroglyphs, a naturally air conditioned cave and a view of the river confluence. The road itself is an adventure! And beautiful!!

This is a gorgeous drive. It takes about 45 minutes to drive to the trail at the end if you don't stop. It is a paved and easy drive.Dont miss it.

This is a long drive to get back to the site but the drive is worth it and you love the views at the end. Watch out for all the deer at dusk along this entire route.

This 30+ mile paved road (each way) is delightful, but the real impressive views are from the numerous stopping points. Each is unique, and they get better and better as you go along. Be sure to take the time to do it all, and recognize...More

Worth your time to drive this way out of the way road. Bring your camera for some one of a kind views of the Yampa and Green river canyon's
