Hike Palisade Rim Trail-Late Sleepers join in!

Palisade Rim Trail has been improved so we will take a casual hike up to see

and continue on the main trail.

The Palisade Rim trail is located in the Little Book Cliffs east of the town of Palisade. The trail is aptly named as it runs along the edge of the cliffs in many places offering some rather precipitous views of the Grand Junction area from a vantage point some 1000 feet above the valley floor. (Information taken from GJ Hikes Blog)

Plan on about 4 hours for this out and back hike.

Family friendly, dogs OK on leash and well behaved.

Bring lunch and 10 essentials.

Good views, some moderate exposure while on good trail tread.

If there's time, we'll go to a Palisade refreshment spot.

Parking is limited so car pooling is best.

    Good group, lots of lichen peeping and photo ops; generally we liked the re-routed trail

    Thanks everyone for updating their status so that I'm not waiting for "no-shows". We'll try this again some time. (have 3 friends going today)

      It says on location to meet at Safeway on Horizon to carpool, which is what I entered.

      My oversight - oops I needed to read before I leap.

    Casual pace but hikers need to be capable of a 1.5 mile/hour pace on moderate terrain.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
