Palisade Rim Trail is a popular mountain biking and hiking trail about 2 miles east of Palisade on the old road towards the junction of I-70. Five minutes up the trail is located the scruffy, impressive 19th Hole mini-spire. Much further up the trail above the pictographs to the right are many other such small, shale spires that are still unclimbed. These are for those who have a taste for a bit of loose rock and want a cure for winter boredom.
