Trail Overview
Coon Hollow
Enjoy this relatively quiet trail that starts by crossing washes and travels through a canyon. You will then begin a steep climb up to a ridge with great views of South Shale Ridge and Twin Peaks. Continue on to the saddle, and then take in the beautiful views of Grand Junction and Battlement Mesa. Avoid eroded sections of the trail by taking the washes. Open all year, except for weather closures.
Getting There
Get off I-70 at De Beque, Exit 62. From gas station head north on Roan Creek Road, C.R. 45, over river for 0.5 mile. Turn left on 4th St., then left again on Minter Ave. At 1.3 miles, turn right on unpaved road V 2/10. Follow road west for another 3.3 miles to start of trail at Y intersection.
