Avg Time: 1 Hour 12 Minutes
Total Distance: 8.9 miles

Info: Stayed in Grand Junction for our honeymoon and visited Colorado National Monument. Was a little smaller then I expected, but definitely worth it if you are in the area. About 15 minutes from Grand Junction.

We didn't get to do much hiking because it started raining. Saw some awesome waterfalls to make up for it though!
