“Birding walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2012

We did a bird walk with a ranger. She was a bit scattered, but quite knowledgeable. There were cougar tracks on the trail which had been circled, making them easy to locate and study. We also saw a bald eagle, which made my husband's day. This trail is flat and easy.

“hard to imagine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2012

It is hard to imagine that this used to be the road into the park

Very disappointed in the grafitti on the rocks at the end. When will people realize that we are not impressed by their ignorance. It is also a felony to deface federal land. Too bad they can't be caught.

“Nice views”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2012

this hike is very easy. You do not see any cliff dwellings in this area--it starts in the camping area.

“beautiful sunsets!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2002

Knife Edge Trail is a perfect place to watch sunsets. Off in the distance as it grows darker you can view beautiful Sleeping Ute Mountain while the town of Cortez slowly comes to life below. It will take about 30 minutes max to reach the end of the trail. Be sure to bring your flashlights (I have forgotten mine before). There are giant rocks at the end of the trail that are great for sitting!
