Kodels Canyon Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Kodels Canyon Trail actually begins in the BLM’s McInnis Canyons National Conservation Area and travels into the Colorado National Monument near its west entrance. A one-mile hike from the parking area will take you into a desert wilderness with very few people, loads of wildflowers, and a plethora of towering rock walls, spires, and windows that frame the fascinating canyonlands of the upper Colorado River Plateau.

At the trailhead, you’ll spy a Bureau of Land Management sign directing you onto a trail system established for Kodels, Devils, Flume, and Pollock Bench Trails. The Kodels Canyon Trail within the BLM’s McInnis National Conservation Area ranges in elevation from 4,500 feet to about 5,100 feet. This trail, however, continues into the Colorado National Monument’s westernmost canyon—Kodels—just west of the west entrance to the national monument."
