Just got back from the Dinosaur area, and 14N / Yampa Bench Road is now my favorite dirt road in all of Colorado. We were chased by huge sheepdogs on county road 23 between Meeker to Elk Springs, they are SCARY! We were going about 25mph, it was the fastest we could, and they were gaining on us until they just stopped for no apparent reason. They were Kuvas, I think. 14 and 14n from Elk Springs are about the same difficulty as Thompson Canyon near Onion Creek in Moab, and very similar. Similar terrain and the same super tiny dust that gets in everything. It's full of Bentonite, you could not drive it when wet, but it was easy enough when dry. It starts with just a long drive on a nice desert road, and then descends some switchbacks into the monument. I can't really describe how pretty it all is, it looks a lot like the Moab area but more lush. It's enough of a trail to keep your attention and make you make choices, but it's easy, no real obstacles. Washboards, ruts and isolation are the biggest things. As you go along from East to West the road gets progressively easier once you reach the first overlook. The whole thing is an overlook. Echo Park was stunning, there is an old ranch you can check out, a cave called Whispering Cave that blows cold air (nice in the desert heat!), a dirt roof shack, petroglyphs, and just the beautiful desert all around. Echo Park road is just a dirt road with washboards and four water crossings that have been filled with concrete to make them car-easy. It is stunning though, especially the switchbacks going up to Harper's Corner Road where you can see back over the Yampa Bench road. Meeker is a great town, very nice people and a good mexican place. OHVs are street legal there, so much so that most of the roads out of town are really trails, and there is an OHV route that starts on Market Street in the same place a sidewalk would usually be. We also drove Thornsberg road, part of Sleepy Cat, and took CR13 / West Rifle Creek road on the way home, a gorgeous part trail part road that leads to Rifle Gap State Park and Rifle Falls. We also went to the Fish Hatchery and took Grass Creek road to New Castle on the way out. I cannot recommend this area enough! More pics and videos ASAP.
