Dinosaur Diamond Scenic Byway
Where It Goes: The Diamond Dinosaur Highway is a diamond-shaped loop through Utah and Colorado. The “vertices” of the diamond are located at Moab, Helper, and Vernal, (all in Utah), and Grand Junction, Colorado. A trip beginning at Grand Junction would follow I-70 into Utah and eventually shift to US-191. From there, it’s a matter of following the loop all the way west and then north, through Utah, and then finally southeast all the way back to Grand Junction
Length: 512 miles
Driving Time: About 8 hours
Where to Stop: The byway loops around the Dinosaur National Monument, a breathtaking area with panoramic canyons, where more than 1,000 dinosaur fossils and bones adorn cliff face quarries. For more action, raft on the Green and Yampa Rivers. In addition, there’s a whole playground of outdoor wonders nearby, like the Grand Mesa, (near the starting point, Grand Junction), or Canyonlands National Park, an outdoorsman’s paradise in Moab, Utah.
