Harpers Corner Scenic Drive: Journey Through Time Professional Review and Guide

"This driving tour is intended to introduce visitors to the canyon country of the monument, along the Green and Yampa Rivers. No dinosaur fossils are available for viewing in this area, and camping is not allowed along the route. As you’ll see from your map, most of the drive is actually in Colorado, outside the monument.

The road crosses into Utah and finally, at Mile 27.5, enters the park and reenters Colorado. The drive offers twenty-three numbered stops, all of which provide excellent interpretation of the canyons, formations, trees, and plants of the area. The first short, easy, 0.5-mile walk on the tour leaves from just behind the visitor center and is called the Cold Desert Hike. This very informative hike explains how certain plants and animals exist in this arid high-desert ecosystem located at the edge of the Great Basin Desert. ROAD CONDITIONS: Paved road the entire way. No facilities on the road. Pit toilets at picnic areas and overlooks."
