Alcove Nature Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This collection of rambles through Colorado’s high desert leads to overlook points that most kids say are “really cool.” One of the few trails in Colorado National Monument far from a precipitous canyon rim, the Alcove Nature Trail serves as a delightful introduction to desert wildlife and geology.

A loop on Canyon Rim and Window Rock trails rewards with views of the distant Book Cliffs and closer formations. The Alcove Nature Trail begins just across from the visitor center. Two
brochures accompany this thirty-one-site interpreted trail, the “Junior Ranger” version aimed at young hikers."
