GO OFF ROAD, HIT THE TRAILS AND FEEL THE RUSH!!



Choose from three different trails ranging in difficulty. Fairly easy, Monticello Canyon Trail takes you through canyon country to the Monticello Box. Palomas Gap Trail is fairly difficult with a steep climb and switchbacks on the way down. Most difficult is Broad Canyon Trail which requires vehicles with plenty of clearance. All three trails offer dramatic scenery.
