Utah Road Trip

Utah and Colorado National Parks Road Trip

Vernal is an ideal starting point for your next road trip through Utah and Colorado. Take on this 1100-mile loop for a view of some of the most amazing red rock formations and national parks in the country.

1. Dinosaur National Monument

After picking up your car rental in Vernal, drive east into Dinosaur National Monument. The monument spans from eastern Utah into northwestern Colorado and offers great opportunities for hiking, biking, and rafting.  The real attraction within the monument, however, is the dinosaur bones! Here you’ll enjoy views of ancient petroglyphs and more than 1,500 dinosaur fossils!

2. Moffat County, CO

Explore the monument from west to east, and plan to exit in Deerlodge Park. This area is well-known for its robust elk population – visitors can observe large herds year-round! Then, continue east to Sand Wash Basin to catch a glimpse of some of the country’s last remaining herds of wild mustangs. Continue east toward Craig to further explore the area. Craig’s proximity to Dinosaur National Monument, Elkhead Reservoir, Yampa River State Park, the Museum of Northwest Colorado, and many other attractions make it an ideal place to stop and explore.

3. Rocky Mountain National Park

Drive east on Highway 40 to the gorgeous mountain town of Steamboat Springs. This resort town offers plenty of amenities and entertainment to shake up your trip. Then, head into Rocky Mountain National park for breathtaking views of the Rockies, clear mountain lakes, alpine forests, hiking, camping, and more.
