Independence Monument at 9:00 am

This is a moderate 5 mile loop to Independence Monument.  A local favorite with beautiful scenery and hopefully big horn sheep!   Bring water and snacks but no dogs since this is in the Monument.  This should only take a couple of hours but it is still a great hike this time of year. We should be done around noon! Contact me if you need directions 970/[masked]

    I'll meet at the trailhead. For the loop: are you planning to go up Wedding canyon, or down, or is this TBD?

      I'm in favor of the loop: up through Wedding Canyon, and down the main trail. I'm willing to lead out on this...

    Chad please check about bringing service dogs. I've heard of a hiker being fined $300 for bringing their dog into the Monument.

    For those that aren't sure where the trailhead is, let's meet at the Dinosaur Museum in Fruita at 8:45 and we can carpool or caravan to the trailhead!
