On the Colorado side of Dinosaur National Monument, visit the Dinosaur National Monument Canyon Visitor Center for exhibits, film presentation and information. Harpers Corner Auto Tour is a 31-mile (one-way) scenic drive that explores the unique landscape with numerous overlooks along the way, hiking trails, picnic tables, and incredible photo ops. The route passes Plug Hat Butte, featuring a wheelchair-accessible trail and a picnic area. In winter, Harpers Road is closed from Plug Hat. At the end of Harpers Road, off-roaders will love Echo Park Road, a steep 14 mile one-way unpaved road, note, impassable when wet. Take a guided white-water or float trip from an outfitter on the Green and Yampa Rivers, both of which cut through Dinosaur National Monument, offering an incredible perspective from which to view the rock formations. Make it an overnight in one of 3 campgrounds on the Colorado side. There is a fee to enter both sides of the monument, or use your America the Beautiful Pass.
