“A trail that clings to the high slopes of Uncompahgre Plateau with dramatic views of Unaweep Canyon.”— Tom Robson
When the views shift to Unaweep Canyon, you may recall learning in geology class that Unaweep Canyon has a unique feature of two creeks that flow in opposite directions. There is even a sign along the highway marking the Unaweep Divide location where West and East Creek head their separate directions.
Rim Trail Road out to the trail is at times quite rough and requires a 4x4 high clearance vehicle with a skilled driver. But the beautiful views and solitude are worth the effort.
