Whitewater Basin Trail

  If you like a trail that no one is on this is the one for you. The first mile is rough with cattle tracks. This is a quick and easily accessible trail to town if you want to just get away after work. We have hiked and biked it 4 times and every time we see tons of game. Enjoy your hike and take your friend, because you will not see anyone on the trail.
Says Brad Bierma

Whitewater Basin Trail is a trail quite far from Grand Junction but it is
    a really good trail. Hiking here in Colorado is a must. We all need to get out in nature once in a while and if you happen to be in Mesa County of Colorado, Whitewater Basin Trail is a great local trail for doing a bit of leg stretching.
If you come at the right time of year, Colorado River offers some wonderful whitewater. Jumbo Reservoir Campground is a good campground nearby, and soar down the rapids of Kannah Creek in a kayak. People from Whitewater love to come to Whitewater Basin Trail, and magnificent water scenery is available at Guild Enlargement Dam in the vicinity of Whitewater Basin Trail. Whitewater Basin Trail is a wonderful place to visit for more than one day, Glacier Spring Campground  
is a wonderful place to camp nearby. Through the summer months at Whitewater Basin Trail highs are usually in the 90's, and the overnight is rather chillier of course, ordinarily in the 60's. Through the winter highs are frequently in the 30's with winter lows in the 10's overnight here at Whitewater Basin Trail.
