McInnis Canyons

Colorado > Grand Junction Area
Warning Access Issue: Stay on trails. Some areas are wilderness and cannot be bolted on. DetailsDrop down


This is a large area to the north west of the Colorado National Monument. This area is a National Conservation area that is quite expansive. Kodel's, Devil's, and Rattlesnake Arch Canyons are all in this area. Most routes require a healthy approach. And, dogs are allowed!

Getting There

Head Northwest on I-70 exiting at Fruita (exit 19). Head towards the Monument entrance, but take a right on King's View Drive. Head through the neighborhood and onto where it becomes a dirt road. Continue to the large parking lot for Devil's Canyon and further on for other canyons.
