Rattlesnake Canyon through Cedar Arch 1

Rattlesnake Canyon

The upper cliffs of Rattlesnake Canyon can be seen through the opening of Cedar Arch, also called First Arch. This portion of the McInnis Canyons National Conservation Area rests just west of Colorado National Monument and Grand Junction. While difficult to reach, the journey and beautiful landscape is worth the effort.
