Notes

No Thoroughfare Canyon Trail is a difficult hike in Colorado National Monument near Grand Junction that rewards hikers with superb scenery. The monument says hikers can expect a "descent from a plateau on maintained trail followed by undeveloped route through remote canyon. Canyon walls rise over 400 feet. Isolated. Primitive. Most hikers do not attempt the entire route. If you decide to hike the entire canyon, take a compass and topographic map. The trail is unmaintained beyond the second waterfall. Check the weather as flash floods pose an imminent danger." There is camping available at the Saddlehorn Campground which is located near the Visitor Center, about four miles from the west entrance.
