This a paved 31 mile scenic road in Dinosaur National Monument on the Colorado side. Not as popular as Cub Creek Road, but IMO much more scenic.

We did all the pull offs - every view is a winner! There's 4 picnic areas.
Wildflowers everywhere. Weird infestations on the road of what we found out later are Mormon Crickets.
From the top of the Harpers Corner Trail you can see Steamboat Rock & the confluence of the Yampa & Green rivers.

All in all it was a good day.

This is one of the best scenic drives I can recall ever taking, especially when coupled with the Harpers Corner Trail at the end of the road. Take your time and stop at all the overlooks. If you are staying in Vernal, Utah, this drive plus the hike is absolutely doable in less than a day. The Plug Hat Trail is also a nice short trail with the trailhead near the start of the road.

This was a beautiful ride...go to each of the overlooks and take the short hikes...take your time and spend the two or so hours to fully engage with the spot. No dinosaurs bones, but sheer beauty....very very worth it...we loved the drive as much as the drive from the Utah side of the park.

I was staying in Vernal UT so the round trip drive to Harpers Corner and back was about 130 miles. The scenic drive begins about 1-2 miles east of Dinosaur, CO. The ranger at the visitor center suggested the Bull Canyon Rim Trail and of course, the Harpers Corner trail at the end of the road. The Bull Canyon Rim Trail starts in the Plug Hat Butte picnic area...look for a small hiking sign (with no explanation as to where it goes) as you drive into the picnic area. If you walk a short distance through the Juniper Trees behind the sign, you will come to an "official" sign that describes the trail - 1.3 miles each way. It is an easy, almost level walk with nice canyon views - there are no railings, so be careful and watch children! Back on the scenic drive, I had lunch at the Canyon Overlook - by following "unofficial" trails, there are more good viewpoints at this overlook..

After brief stops at the other viewpoints along the road, I did the hike at Harpers Corner. This is 2-3 miles round trip and not difficult. There is one small spot with a scary drop-off, but the trail is reasonably wide and smooth there, so just know you will be past it in only a few steps. The view at the end of the trail are outstanding - there are sturdy railings (high enough for feeling safe and low enough to easily see over.
Be sure to take in the views from both sides of this narrow point - they are entirely different!

By doing both hikes and stopping at the points along the road, this made a great day trip. If you have less time, do the Harpers Corner hike. If you can't hike, just stop at the viewpoints along the road. As others have said, there are NO services along the scenic drive.

It's hard to describe what you see here and pictures do not and will not do it justice. This is one of those things you just need to see for yourselves.

This 31-mile (one way) scenic drive has numerous overlooks some of which are vast and stunning. Plan at least a half a day (or more if you stop often to view the scenery). If the sun is right you can get some great landscape photos.

If you have a high clearance vehicle and the road is dry, then definitely drive down this road. There's an old ranch, petroglyphs, a naturally air conditioned cave and a view of the river confluence. The road itself is an adventure! And beautiful!!

This is a gorgeous drive. It takes about 45 minutes to drive to the trail at the end if you don't stop. It is a paved and easy drive.Dont miss it.

This is a long drive to get back to the site but the drive is worth it and you love the views at the end. Watch out for all the deer at dusk along this entire route.

We enjoyed seeing this "other side" of Dinosaur Natl Park, driving this easy road climbing up to great views. There are several stops at overlooks, which are all worthwhile, and a couple of quick interpretative walks. The best views are at the end of the road, taking the hike out to view the confluence of the Yampa and Green Rivers. The hike is about 3 miles round-trip, so be prepared for the time that the hike will take, depending on your fitness.
