Hiking Grand Junction

Hiking Grand JunctionWe are located in an amazing area so get outside and enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Hiking Grand Junction is the perfect way to take in the atmosphere, see the surroundings and stretch your legs a bit. Hiking can be so much fun but can also be so peaceful. Enjoy a hike with your friends and/or family or take a short hike alone to clear your head and refocus your thoughts.

Located next to the McInnis Canyon National Conservation Area, we have a number of great hiking trails for you to explore. Eagles Wing is  part of the Lunch Loops Trail System. It is one of the most difficult hikes and stretches 1.9 miles in lenght. Located off Little Park Road, it is open to bikers as well. For a kid friendly hike, Kids Meal Loop or Twist-N-Shout Loop are both easy trails stretching 1.6 miles in length. With these two trails, you can enjoy the great outdoors, beautiful scenery and get a little exercise without pushing yourself too much. Rattlesnake Arches Loop is about 10 miles West of Grand Junction. It is the holy grail of hiking trails in Grand Junction. Consisting of the second highest concentration of arches in the US it is a hike you cannot miss. Bring your camera, a snack and enjoy the view. This hike is a moderately difficult hike and may take up to 6 hours to complete. Bring lots of water and leave the pups at home as these rock surfaces become extremely hot.

We ask that you be prepared when heading out to hike Grand Junction, especially if you are alone. Always take water, a first aid kit and snacks. Be sure to let someone know where you are going, which route you plan to take and when you expect to return. Stop by the front desk and let our friendly office staff know of your plans so we can be looking for your return. If you need directions or more hiking trail suggestions, just ask! We are happy to send you to a few of our favorite spots.
