    Default Grand Junction trail suggestions?



    I'm headed out for a 3-day trip to Grand Junction this weekend with my boys (6 & 10).

    After doing a little research, we'll be spending Friday at the Colorado National Monument (Rock Rim Drive), and stopping at Rifle Falls on our way back to the Denver Metro area on Sunday. Saturday, however, is unplanned.

    Normally, I use my Charles Wells Funtreks books as a trail guide, but there are no trails in the Grand Junction area in either of his books. I've looked at traildamage and don't really see what I'm looking for.

    I'm looking ideas for a mild-to-moderately difficult "day-trip" trail run with local history, ruins, petroglyphs, etc. I'd prefer a trail that's not an "out and back" as I'd like to have the kids see all new stuff.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    -Charles

    Like I said, I've looked at traildamage and am looking for something more historically interesting. IntrepidXJ on Colorado4x4 has suggested Escalante Canyon near Delta,
