Directions: From Grand Junction take I-70 East to the Cameo exit (Exit 45), cross the Colorado River and drive past the power plant. Stay on the main road. Follow the road westward for approximately 1.5 miles to the Coal Canyon trailhead.
From this trailhead you can access Coal Canyon, Cottonwood Canyon, the Hoodoo trail, Main Canyon, the Spring Creek trail and the Ute trail. I haven't hiked in the wild horse area very much, so I plan to start on the Main Canyon trail and explore the area. You can make this hike as long or as short as you would like.
Appropriate Trail Footwear
Trekking Poles (optional)
This is the Wild Horse Area. We're in with wild animals. Please make sure your dogs are under control at all times. There can be no chasing of the horses. Bring all their accessories: poop bags, leash, water & collapsable bowl (there will be no Fido water on this trail)
